Maker House: the fashion show in the exhibition
The entrance to the show is at number 1 of Manette Street, in the heart of Soho, one of the most animated and well-known neighborhoods in London. A small one-way street where hundreds of tourists, curious and not, anxiously await the entrance - or exit - of their favorite celebs behind the barriers.

The space is divided into two floors and for this evening it hosts Henry Moore, British sculptor to whom Christopher Bailey he was inspired by the collection.
Fluid forms, marble and metal processing in an abstract key: the inspirations Moore's art come from underground, a place where he refused during the Second World War.
To lull the audience then the music of Anna Calvi, another element that is particularly cared for and designed for each brand show.
Clothes tell a (new) story
The sculptures and the artist's vision translate into garments and accessories on the catwalk. Where is the white lace defines women's clothes, there is patchwork sweatshirt revisited, far from the stereotypes of the classic sportswear item, it becomes the leading clothing item.
The classic trench coat, an icon of the brand since the beginning, he discovers new cuts and soft details that implement and exceed the silhouette we are used to.
The research turns towards something that goes beyond simple clothing, the design changes and goes beyond the conventional one to become unique pieces, Anyway easily wearable.
A real narrative that starts from simplicity to evolve in detail, inhandcrafted accessory, which makes a difference. All the catwalk looks, in fact, close the circle with what appears to be a second runway, embellished with unique details, positioned on the shoulders and neck of the models.
