Fashion in Motion: House of Holland

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk shows featuring leading fashion designers from across the world. As part of their 10th anniversary celebrations, House of Holland staged four free retrospective catwalk shows in our magnificent Raphael Gallery.

Fashion in Motion: House of Holland showcased some of the label’s standout moments and key looks from the past 10 years on 21 October 2016. Showcased were the iconic t-shirts that launched House of Holland in 2006 and the tartan eyepatch in 2008 to the raving grandma inspired collection for AW11, as well as elements from recent shows.

London is the most inspiring place in the world. The melting pot of cultures and the diverse sense of identity that you find all around you inspires me and my work every single day.

Catwalk highlights

A graduate of the London College of Printing Journalism BA, Henry Holland was catapulted into the fashion limelight in 2006 with his irreverent fashion groupies slogan t-shirts featuring catchphrases such as 'UHU GARETH PUGH' and 'GET YOUR FREAK ON GILES DEACON', which name-checked his contemporaries in the London fashion world.

In February 2008, after two seasons showing with Fashion East, House of Holland held its first solo show at London Fashion Week to critical acclaim. Now in its 13th season, House of Holland is firmly established on the international fashion scene.

Designer Henry Holland's joyous blend of finely crafted fabrics and colourful prints celebrate the dynamic, irreverant sensibility of 'London Girl' style.
