Major Exhibition NAOMI: In Fashion at V&A Museum London

NAOMI: In Fashion explores the unequalled 40-year career of fashion model and cultural icon Naomi Campbell. She is a trailblazer in the field, her celebrated ability to ‘walk’ the catwalk, together with the special alchemy she creates through collaborations with every major fashion house, fashion publication and leading fashion photographers, ensure that after four decades in the fashion industry Naomi continues to star in catwalk shows, advertising campaigns and editorial fashion shoots around the world.

The exhibition opens with high-impact clips of Naomi on the catwalk, illustrating her legendary ‘walk’, setting the scene. The exhibition shows Naomi’s personal wardrobe of haute couture and ready-to-wear ensembles from key moments in her career along with loans from designer archives and objects from the V&A’s collections.

Highlights include a dramatic 1989 Thierry Mugler car-inspired corset, Naomi’s look from Sarah Burton’s last Alexander McQueen show, a pink Valentino ensemble worn at the 2019 Met Gala and a pair of staggeringly high Vivienne Westwood platform shoes worn by Campbell during her famous 1993 catwalk fall. The exhibition includes around 100 looks and accessories from the best of global high fashion chronicling her 40 years in the industry.

When you visit the exhibition you’ll be awestruck with the designs by Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui, Azzedine Alaïa, Burberry, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Gianni and Donatella Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Karl Lagerfeld, Kenneth Ize, Torishéju Dumi, Valentino, Virgil Abloh, Vivienne Westwood, Yves Saint Laurent and many others.

Naomi Campbell said: “I’m honoured to be asked by the V&A to share my life in clothes with the world.”

Earlier this week I had the pleasure to visit the exclusive preview at the V&A Museum in London. And what a splendid treat that was. Make sure to put a visit to this remarkable exhibition on your list when visiting London.

The exhibition NAOMI: In Fashion will run from 22 June 2024 – 6 April 2025
