London College of Fashion is bringing a fabulous new exhibition to its Fashion Space Gallery that will pay tribute to a talented painter and a legendary designer. 'Coco Chanel: A New Portrait by Marion Pike (Paris, 1967-71)' is a fresh angle on the iconic fashion figure from the perspective of her close friend and confidant, Californian artist Marion Pike. It's the story of a creative friendship, and you'll be surprised to learn even more about the two through this fascinating window into the past.
Take in five stunning large-scale portraits of Coco and ogle haute couture Chanel pieces worn by Marion and her daughter, Jeffie, who has lent the all pieces to LCF from her mother's archives. A lovely show that's likely to grab attention from more than just the resident fashion students.
