David Sassoon A Life in Fashion – Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mullany
August 13, 2014 @ 10:30 am - January 1, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
In 2011 British fashion designer David Sassoon donated his archive of hundreds of fashion drawings from the late 1950s to the 2000s to the Fashion Museum in Bath. This generous gift charts the history of the firm Bellville Sassoon Lorcan Mulanny as one of London’s top couturiers, and represents an unparalleled record of a life in fashion.
Three years later in 2014 this special display at the Fashion Museum celebrates both the gift of the archive to the museum, and the three extraordinary designers – Belinda Belville, David Sassoon, and Lorcan Mullany – who together have run this uniquely British fashion house for over 50 years. Twenty five choice evening dresses have been assembled by Mr Sassoon, each one lovingly kept across the years by Bellville Sasson’s loyal clientele, and now borrowed back especially for the display at the Fashion Museum in Bath.
