The major fashion house, Burberry, is transforming an old Clerkenwell courthouse into a photography gallery.
Who knew an old 18th century courthouse could be transformed into the next big portrait photography gallery but it has been, and is set to be the capital’s most fashionable.
Burberry have taken over all three floors of Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell and filled them with hundreds of photographs curated by Burberry’s chief creative officer, Christopher Bailey, and Lucy Kamara Moore, who runs fashion bookshop Claire de Rouen.
The exhibition is called ‘Here We Are’ and will feature a collection of pictures that have previously been unseen by the public. There will be images of post-war London, throwbacks to a 1980’s Belgravia and lots of images that reveal the way Britain has worked and lived throughout the decades.
Lucy Kamara Moore has said that the exhibition will “reflect the brand’s expansive approach to the relation between fashion and visual culture.” Go on Burberry.
It will even have a pop-up bookshop, café to quench your thirst and will host Burberry’s show for its latest collection later this month.
‘Here We Are’ will be open daily on September 18th-October 1st from 10am-9pm.
