Past Event

Daniel Lismore, hailed by Vogue as 'England's Most Eccentric Dresser', will be the next designer to showcase his collection in the Raphael Gallery. Lismore is recognisable for creating three-dimensional sculptural ensembles which mesh together past, present and future. His work is a psychedelic mash up of haute couture, charity shop finds and vintage fabrics, and sustainability sits at the heart of Lismore's design philosophy through reuse and upcycling.

Lismore will present highlights from his first solo exhibition 'Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken'. There will be twelve life-size ensembles which will examine social, historical and cultural themes central to Lismore's work and life as a 'living sculpture'.

Fashion in Motion is supported by Libbie Scher Mugrabi.

For over 20 years the V&A's Fashion in Motion series has brought free-to-attend catwalk shows to the public, enabling anyone to take a seat on the front row. The only fashion series of its kind, it allows people to experience a professional fashion event in the truly unique setting of the museum.

There will be four free shows throughout the day at 12.00, 14.00, 16.00 and 18.00. Tickets are limited and booking is essential.
