    It’s out with the old and in with the new for Burberry, who have just announced a brand new venue for their London Fashion Week show.

    The British fashion brand will also be hosting a major photography exhibition in the show space, named Here We Are, at the Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell, from 18th September to 1st October 2017.

    Curated by Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, it will showcase the work of over 30 of the 20th century’s most celebrated social and documentary photographers, like Alasdair McLellan, Shirley Baker and Ken Russell.

    Highlights will include never-before-seen prints, as well as portrayals of London communities from the past few decades.

    Christopher Bailey said he was excited to be able to present British life in all its nuances, and given the past months’ events, it’s certainly something to be celebrated.

    Alongside the exhibition, there will be workshops too, and you can get tickets using the above link.

    If that wasn’t exciting enough, you’ll be happy to hear that Burberry’s new collection will be presented at the same venue on Saturday 16 September at 7pm, and that you’ll be able to buy it all straight away.

    We can’t wait.
