Fashion in Motion: Jenny Packham

Friday 19 July 2013

Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion events presented against the unique backdrop of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings the excitement and spectacle of the high fashion catwalk to a wide audience.

This Fashion in Motion celebrated the 25th anniversary of designer Jenny Packham, presenting highlights of Packham’s elegant and iconic collections. On graduating from Central St Martins with a first class honors degree in fashion, Jenny Packham went on to establish her own design house in 1988. Today the Jenny Packham label is one of the UK’s most successful independent fashion brands with showrooms in London, Paris and New York. Known for her glamorous evening dresses and bridal wear with luxurious embellishment, Packham’s designs are favoured by Hollywood stars and royalty alike.

Jenny Packham said,

'Our 25th year provides the perfect timing to take part in Fashion in Motion, which will present looks from past collections and include some of our most iconic pieces. It’s a pleasure to be able to present these within the inspiring space of the V&A’s Raphael Gallery'.
