A new exhibition – entitled Fashion Together – is to open on September 8 at the Fashion Space Gallery. Curated by Lou Stoppard it explores the relationships of seven creative duos - Rick Owens and Michèle Lamy, Nick Knight and Daphne Guinness, Shaun Leane and Alexander McQueen, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Gareth Pugh and Ruth Hogben, and Thom Browne and Stephen Jones - showcasing the work of photographers and filmmakers to designers and milliners.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the exhibition, Stoppard says, “I’m interested in lasting partnerships - the formative, friendships, the unions that exist behind the scenes or the decades-long working relationships that have shaped each participant’s vision and life."

Giving an insight into the collaborative process, the exhibition will include never-before-seen photographs, garments, sketches and notes between the various duos, and recordings of the pairs in conversation with Stoppard.

In addition, there will also be a book to accompany the exhibition which features 18 of fashion's finest duos in conversation about how they have worked together over the years.
Published by Rizzoli, it goes on sale from 17th October 2017.

Fashion Together is open from September 8-January 13 at Fashion Space Gallery – 20 John Prince’s Street, London, W1G 0BJ. For more info, head HERE.
