Forgetting the Catwalk: When is fashion fit for the gallery?

London College of Fashion will be hosting the second event in its LCFMASTERCLASS series in November. Taking place at London’s Arts Club, the evening will bring together an intimate audience of fashion commentators, designers, curators and artists to debate the relevance of fashion in the context of art, exhibition and curation.

It also celebrates the arrival of work from the Glasstress collateral event at the 55th International La Biennale di Venezia, which is coming to London for the very first time. The exhibition, WHITE LIGHT | WHITE HEAT, is a two-venue exhibition taking place at The Fashion Space Gallery at London College of Fashion and the Wallace Collection and sees contemporary artists and fashion designers working with the medium of glass.

Presenter Lauren Laverne will lead a distinguished panel including curator of WHITE LIGHT | WHITE HEAT James Putnam; Head of London College of Fashion, Professor Frances Corner OBE; artist Paul Fryer; designer and artist Philip Colbert; artist Zowie Broach of Boudicca, and founder of the Caspian Arts Foundation Nina Mahdavi.

The event will be live streamed on this site from 18:30 GMT on Wednesday 27th November.

LCFMASTERCLASS forms part of a series of live streamed debates designed to discuss the challenges faced by an ever evolving fashion industry.
