In what is becoming an endless ring of museum exhibition surrounding the mystery that is Coco Chanel, the London College of Fashion is hosting Coco Chanel: A New Portrait by Marion Pike, Paris 1967-71, a new exhibition that explores the life stories, friendships of Californian artist Marion Pike met Coco Chanel.
Curated by London College of Fashion Professor, and Chanel biographer, Amy de la Haye, all of the pieces in the exhibit have been lent by Jeffie Pike Durham, who has become her mother’s archivist.
If you are in London, or close to London, this is a definite must see. I wish I had a budget to travel the world to visit Chanel exhibitions, but alas, I don’t. If you go to the exhibit and can manage any (non-flash, of course) shots, I would love to see them — and even post them.
Date: 5th September- 16th November
Location: Fashion Space Gallery, London College of Fashion, 20 John Princes Street, W1G 0BJ.
Sunday & Public Holidays: Closed
