Peter Jensen: Fashion In Motion

Every three months, fashion enthusiasts gather in the V&A’s Raphael Gallery to experience a new show in the ‘Fashion In Motion’ series. 

On Friday 18th November, the show featured the designer Peter Jensen as he celebrated his ten year anniversary with a retrospective show. The Fashion in Motion series has featured some of the greatest designers of our time such as Yohji Yamamoto, Gareth Pugh, Manish Aurora and others, making the catwalk experience accessible to everyone.

Peter Jensen is a London based designer, synonymous for his playful, upbeat garments that are bursting with colour and quirkiness. This is reflected in his prints which are a key feature in his work and frequently portray brightly coloured narratives.  On one hand, Jensen’s garments are practical and wearable but on the other hand they deftly manage to be highly unconventional.  Perhaps this is due to the sly appearance of an extra large pom-pom balanced precariously on the top of a woollen beanie hat or a pair of black sunglasses with rabbit ears and whiskers attached to them.  It is this mischievous take on fashion that makes his designs all the more desirable.

 Who knows what the next ‘Fashion in Motion’ event will bring?
