“The Circle”-London’s Live Archives gallery featuring Maison Martin Margiela,Dior Homme, Lanvin and more


London’s Live Archives gallery will push the boundaries between fashion and art, through the works of Maison Martin Margiela, Ann Demeulemeester, Dior Homme, Lanvin, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Rick Owens. The Circle exhibit will use the work of a host of fashion’s most noted designers as the iconography to extracts from writings on glamour by Elizabeth Wilson.

Live Archives describes the exhibition as “a fantasy, an exhibition fiction exploring the notion of glamour… revisiting the occult associations of glamour’s ancient Celtic roots, The Circle proposes an alternative to the contemporary equation of glamour and celebrity, rejecting the ‘shameless self-exposure’ of tabloid-driven infamy, garish sequins and bared flesh.”
