​With fashion month now over, normality has resumed: the perfect moment, then, to get cultural. As Autumn sets in, we give you the rundown of the best fashion exhibitions to add to your diary for the season.
 
Mademoiselle Privé
 
Karl Lagerfeld has joined forces with the Saatchi Gallery to create an exhibition that immerses visitors into the luxury world of Coco Chanel. Complete with a replica of Chanel’s famous salon staircase, the exhibition focuses on Haute Couture, the High Jewellery collection “Bijoux de Diamants, as well as the iconic CHANEL N°5 perfume. Chanel has even taken over the gardens at the Saatchi Gallery, transforming them into a space which reflects the different stages of Gabrielle Chanel’s life.

Liberty in Fashion
As Liberty celebrates its 140th anniversary, it seemed like a fitting moment to host a retrospective. ‘Liberty in Print’, a new exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum, focuses on the department stores’ iconic textile prints. Covering the brand’s history since 1875, it includes precious archive pieces as well as recent collaborations. A must for fans of the iconic print.
