My first exhibition in London was really fascinating. Discovering the journey of Louis Vuitton’s collection and seeing live how the artisans create the small Louis Vuitton La Petite Malle was a great experience. I recommend you to go to any exhibitions that interest you. It is really worth the time and effort.
“Series 3” is a stand-alone exhibition showcasing a designer and his creative process and influences. Far more than a simple collection, it is a stream of consciousness, dreams and self-reflexive journeys. Inside a designer’s mind, muses intertwine with cherished memories and visions of new shapes, cuts and meticulous craftsmanship. He sits between the past he embraced and the future. The designer’s careful thoughts pair with a delicate artisanal touch: a new moment of excellence born in this union. “Series 3” retraces Nicolas Ghesquière’s Autumn-Winter 2015/2016 collection for Louis Vuitton. “Series 3” is a sensorial journey, venturing deep into the designer’s soul and an artisan’s heart. An adventure along the emotional corridors of Louis Vuitton.

Enter into this extraordinary, geodesic dome, a reference to the structure built for the fashion show at the Frank Gehry designed Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, in homage to the architect Richard Buckminster Fuller. Inside, awaits on odyssey in time and space.
What is a collection? How does a designer imagine a dress? How does Nicolas Ghesquière dream up a silhouette? These moments of thought and creation are expressed through one voice to discover how the Autumn-Winter 2015/2016 came to be.
In the centre of the room a Louis Vuitton trunk containing Nicolas Ghesquière’s creative process and inspiration.
Over a century after its inception, the trunk still holds some of Louis Vuitton’s most treasured secrets and guards many of Nicolas Ghesquière’s new ones. It only has to be opened, and all shall be revealed…

See the Louis Vuitton artisans and experience life in the atelier where only hands can yield such beauty. Here, time stands still.
“I’ve always loved designing accessories. For me, accessories never stand alone, there has to be a common thread between them. They’re an integral part of each outfit, either clashing or complementing it. They share the same sentiment and movement as the garment. A silhouette is a complete make-up of all these elements.” Nicolas Ghesquière.

Walk in Wardrob
Here clothes tucked away in their glass cases come alive when they are taken.
Garmonts speak to the woman who wishes to own it. It tells her a story, one she’ll enjoy listening to, tales of who she would like to become. The wardrobe: a gateway to a thousand possibilities.
That’s the end of the journey. There was also a nice café where we all visitors could enjoy some drinks and delicious food.
We also had the chance to grab some free posters and templates. So, I hope you could get an insight into the exhibition and enjoyed the post.
