Corset Exhibition

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD CORSETS

1987 TO PRESENT DAY

Exploring the house’s subversion of corsetry from 1987 to the present day, Vivienne Westwood Corsets examines Westwood’s approach to underwear as outerwear. The installation illustrates the intrinsic links of the corset to historical dress, culture and fine art – which continue to serve as a constant source of inspiration for Vivienne Westwood collections today.

This special installation presents a curated retrospective through the brand's iconic corset archive and features pivotal runway show looks. Each piece demonstrates Westwood’s ingenuity in corsetry design and Andreas Kronthaler’s most recent iterations of this historical garment, which have gone on to influence the current collections of the house.

Vivienne Westwood Limited-Edition Corset Charm


In celebration of the Vivienne Westwood Corsets installation, a limited-edition jewellery collection has been created. Featured is a 3D charm of the original Westwood Portrait corset, which first appeared in the Vivienne Westwood Harris Tweed Autumn-Winter 1987/ 88 collection. The piece was reimagined in a metallic gold iteration for the Autumn-Winter 1988/89 collection, titled Time Machine – which inspired the special jewellery pendant. The collection offers this distinct Westwood gold plated charm on a necklace and bracelet, on either a pearl or gold plated chain and matching clip earrings.
