I’ve got some fashionable news for you!
The exhibit is entitled Leather Forever and celebrates Hermès‘175th anniversary at 6 Burlington Gardens, right in the British capital. The goal of the exhibition is to explore the fascination with creating luxury items from leather, and will also trace the legendary brand’s journey from 19th century saddle and harness maker to revered 21st century handbag institution.
WOW Factor – At “Leather Forever”, Hermès artisans from the workshops in Paris will create bags right in front of presumably stylish visitors. You’ll get to watch first-hand how a beautiful piece of leather becomes an even more beautiful Hermès bag.
Also, exhibition attendees will have the option to place their bids for one (or all) of four bags, made especially for the exhibit, representing England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales to be auctioned off with proceeds going toward the London Academy of Arts.
The Hermès exhibit “Leather Forever” will run from May 8th to May 27th. Oh, and did we mention that there is no entrance fee? Just one more reason to take a trip to London!
