Browns - 40 years of fashion innovation

In London again for a shoot, lucky moi! And as I wove through the streets of Soho making my way back to the hotel, I was approached by a young man with a flyer. My knee-jerk reaction is to say 'thanks, but no thanks', but before I could react he managed to blurt out 'would-you-be-interested-in-a-fashion-innovation-exhibition-just-across-the-street?!'. Why, yes. Yes, I would.
Browns 40 Years of Fashion Innovation celebrates the store's 40th birthday. The show highlights designers that have been brought to public attention through Browns and shares some of their key moments from their fashion history. Worth a gander if you're on your lunch break (Miss Finn) or heading into Soho any time soon.
Fashion names include Ralph Lauren, Missoni, Comme des Garcon, John Galliano, the late Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan, and Marc Jacobs, to name but a few. With 40 specially commissioned photographs of ‘Browns Ambassadors’ dressed in specially selected looks. These include Claudia Schiffer, Liberty Ross and Natalia Vodianova by photographer Paolo Roversi.
