Fashion in Motion: Elspeth Gibson

May 2000

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

Elspeth Gibson is a designer whose collections are remarkable for their beautiful, feminine simplicity. Elspeth believes that fashion should flatter the female form. Using simple shapes and clever choices of fabric she creates sophisticated and timeless silhouettes, from the most daring day and evening wear through to exquisitely subtle and refined pieces.

After graduating from the Nottinghamshire College of Design in 1984, Gibson began her career working with Zandra Rhodes. Following this, she worked with leading high street labels Top Shop and Miss Selfridge before becoming head designer at Monix. She established her own label in 1995, opening her first London boutique in 1998.

At the end of the Autumn/Winter 2000 shows in London, Elspeth Gibson received the New Generation award at the British Fashion Awards.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
