This autumn for her London Fashion Week show launching her Spring Summer 2015 womens collection designer Margaret Howell chose a new venue. Rambert’s new purpose built home on the South Bank was suggested to her by the organisers of Open House London Weekend and the show took place on Sunday 14 September.

She said “This year we needed to move our LFW show to accommodate the growing number of guests. I knew I wanted something with the working space and spirit of our Wigmore Street shop and that’s hard to find. So my thanks go to the team at Open House London Weekend for suggesting Rambert. This recently opened building is a functional space with strong associations of movement, energy and style. After all, I design my clothes with just that kind of freedom, life and natural grace in mind. What better place to show them than where dance is made.”

Rambert’s RIBA award winning building designed by Allies and Morrison Architects and completed in December 2013, was open as part of Open House last weekend. If you haven’t yet seen inside, there will be more opportunities to see it next month, during Rambert Revealed – a week long programme of activities offering behind the scenes access to see the company at work, including classes, open rehearsals and tours of the building.
