Fashion City: How Jewish Londoners shaped global style is the next major exhibition at Museum of London Docklands, opening in October 2023. For the first time, the exhibition will uncover the major contribution of Jewish designers in making London an iconic fashion city. Step into a traditional tailor’s workshop in the East End and immerse yourself in the grandeur of a Carnaby Street boutique at the height of the Swinging Sixties. Discover the Jewish fashion makers who became leaders in their industries, founded retail chains still present on the high street today and dressed the rich and famous including David Bowie, Princess Diana and Mick Jagger. Learn about the contribution of key figures such as renowned wedding dress designer Nettie Spiegel, master milliner Otto Lucas, the epitome of British flamboyance Mr Fish and living legend David Sassoon. Featuring fashion and textiles, oral histories, objects, and photography, Fashion City will use the places and spaces of London to weave together this fascinating history, where every stitch tells a truly unique story.
