Burberry firsts: New show venue, photo exhibition, creative collaboration
Here We Are
Christopher Bailey, Burberry's President and Chief Creative Officer has confirmed the brand's venue for the September show, Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell, London, just weeks out from the start of London Fashion Week. The newly renovated location will also double as the site of the photo exhibition, We Are Here, which opens on September 18 and has been curated by Bailey and Lucy Kumara Moore, a writer and the director of the fashion bookstore Claire de Rouenin, in collaboration with photographer, Alasdair McLellan — McLellan is also credited with being the new creative behind the lens of Burberry's upcoming campaign images. The 200-image strong exhibition will showcase works by famed British photographers, of which Bailey says: "I wanted it to celebrate a certain strand of British photography that I've always loved".
