Meadham Kirchhoff to be V&A's next Fashion in Motion focus

Fashion in Motion is a series of live fashion events presented against the unique backdrop of the Victoria and Albert Museum. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings the excitement and spectacle of the high fashion catwalk to a wide audience.

Celebrated design duo Meadham Kirchhoff will be the subject of the V&A’s next Fashion in Motion, presenting highlights of the label’s womenswear collections to date.

The Anglo-French duo Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff met at Central Saint Martins, where Meadham studied womenswear and Kirchhoff menswear. The pair formed the London based Meadham Kirchhoff label in 2002 and went on to win the ‘Emerging Talent – Ready-to-Wear’ award at the British Fashion Awards in 2010. Known for presenting beautiful, theatrical collections against intricately staged and often surreal settings, Meadham Kirchhoff has since garnered widespread critical acclaim.

The designers, who cite influences as varied as Courtney Love, Chanel, The Riot Grrrls and traditional portraiture amongst their inspirations, will select personal highlights for the V&A catwalk shows. Included will be garments from the collections Suddenly, Last Summer (S/S 2011) and A Rebours (A/W 2010), which featured flowing gothic dresses overlaid with floral painted biker jackets and veils in colourful hues.

Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff said; ‘We are very pleased to be involved with the V&A’s Fashion in Motion series. When approaching every collection or garment we secretly hope to make something worthy of being seen in a museum, so for us it is an honour to present a show comprised of hand-picked pieces from our favourite collections.

Oriole Cullen, Fashion in Motion curator, said, ‘Meadham Kirchhoff are known for creating a fantasy world in their collections through their beautifully crafted garments and focus on fine detail. Their shows always contain an element of surprise and wonder, often with a hint of darkness and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this experience to V&A audience'
