Burberry Makers House

Burberry Makers House

After its September debut I was very excited to see what Christopher Bailey and his team at Burberry would do with Makers House, their showcase of their catwalk collection fused with an exhibition about the collections inspirations. For AW2017 that inspiration was Henry Moore, one of Britain’s greatest sculptors and Burberry partnered with the Henry Moore Foundation to present a major exhibition: ‘Henry Moore: Inspiration & Process’, which provides the perfect foil for the exquisite AW17 collection. The weeklong exhibition had a series of workshops such as Wood Block Printing with Hole & Corner magazine and Textile Design Workshop with The New Craftsmen. The catwalk show was also projected along side the collection for a completely immersive experience. While I was there, there was a live performance by emerging British singer-songwriter RHAIN, fresh from her recent Burberry Acoustic recording. The whole experience was very moving and it’s an exhibition you really don’t want to miss but hurry it closes at 9pm tonight!

Burberry Makers House, 1 Manette St, London W1D 4AT. Until 27th February.
