Meadham Kirchoff @ V&A


Some of the greatest British designers have been holding catwalk shows at the Victoria and Albert Museum over the past few years.

Shows from Gareth Pugh to Erdem Moralioglu have gracefully been staged in the museum which is most famous for its art. These shows come under the title ‘Fashion in Motion’, and I was lucky enough to get a seat at the Meadham Kirchoff show.

The show was a bright spectacle of colour, vitality and fun! Meadham Kirchoff is cute but with attitude. The clothes are every little girls fantasy with a grown up edge, think Barbie but from the future!

The design duo who met at Central Saint Martins brought the highlights of their womenswear collections to the Raphael Cartoon room of the V&A; a contrast which worked beautifully between the classical imagery adorning the walls and the bright sequins and feathers worn by the models.

Fashion in Motion allows those who would not always have the opportunity to attend shows to get a taste of the lives of the sartorial elite by giving away free tickets. I urge all fashionistas to apply for the next instalment!
