The Design Museum is celebrating London’s influence on global fashion with a new exhibition.

Titled “REBEL: 30 Years of London Fashion”, the forthcoming exhibition is in collaboration with the British Fashion Council (BFC) and is also set to honor the 30th anniversary of BFC’s NEWGEN program. From figures like Alexander McQueen to Vivienne Westwood, London has undeniably produced a range of not just new silhouettes, but movements in fashion throughout time.

The exhibition seeks to underscore this deep history by looking at the work of over 300 designers. The exhibition is set to include over 100 objects including garments, drawings, films and unique artifacts. But aside from the collection of pieces, the exhibition intends to highlight the entire creative process of fashion design and inspire current and future generations of aspiring fashion creatives.

BFC’s Ambassador for Emerging Talent, Sarah Mower MBE, is set to guest-curate the exhibition alongside the Design Museum’s Senior Curator Rebecca Lewin. Additionally, the esteemed house of Alexander McQueen is serving as the exhibition’s sponsor.

REBEL: 30 Years of London Fashion is set to open during London Fashion Week in September – running from September 16, 2023 through February 11, 2024.
