REBEL: 30 Years of London Fashion

REBEL: 30 Years of London Fashion
Friday 15 September 2023 to Sunday 11 February 2024
Venue: Design Museum

The Design Museum is celebrating 30 years of London Fashion this Autumn 2023, in a major new exhibition.

Running from 15 September 2023 to 11 February 2024, REBEL: 30 Years of London Fashion, which is sponsored by McQueen, will celebrate London’s contribution to contemporary global fashion. 

This is the first major exhibition to focus solely on the creativity of young designers in Britain. 

In a collaboration with the British Fashion Council and their NEWGEN initiative, supporting the best emerging fashion design talent, REBEL will be one of the most comprehensive contemporary fashion exhibitions ever staged in the UK, acknowledging the work of over 300 designers and featuring over 100 objects – from innovative and trailblazing garments to films, drawings and memorabilia.

The show aims to deconstruct the creative process and inspire the next generation of fashion designers by showing how they can develop a career in the fashion industry. It will be guest-curated by BFC Ambassador for Emerging Talent Sarah Mower MBE, and co-curated by the Design Museum Senior Curator Rebecca Lewin. Sarah Burton, Creative Director, Alexander McQueen will chair a curatorial committee.

REBEL will put London’s vital and continued role in the careers of emerging design talent centre stage. From some of the UK’s best fashion schools being based in the capital, to the draw of the city as a hub of freedom of expression and inclusivity, the city has nurtured nearly all the NEWGEN designers since its inception, whether as the place they studied, first showed a collection, or established their network.

NEWGEN alumni include Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Charles Jeffrey, Christopher Raeburn, Erdem, Henry Holland, Kim Jones, J.W. Anderson, Mary Katrantzou, Molly Goddard, Roksanda, Simone Rocha, Stuart Vevers, Priya Ahluwalia, Saul Nash, Grace Wales Boner, Bianca Saunders and many more – and all of them will be spotlighted in this major new exhibition. 

Tickets will go on sale June 2023.
