London Fashion Week S/S 2012 Exhibition Review: Headonism

Brace yourselves for a (nearly) final post on London Fashion Week in this review of the millinery exhibition at Somerset House. Here comes Headonism…

Written by Florence Massey


Charlie Le Mindu by Claire Kearns

The exhibitions around Somerset House are one of my favourite London Fashion Week pleasures - I enjoy wandering the stands in between shows as it gives you a chance to see all of the clothes close up and even talk to some of the designers about their new collections. One such exhibition that I always make sure I catch, is Headonsim. Curated by legendary milliner Stephen Jones, who has designed for everyone from Marilyn Manson to Beyonce, 2011 marks its third year of existence. Read my S/S 2011 review here.
