In spring of this year, the Saatchi played host to Hermès Wanderland, in the autumn 180 Strand held an exhibition, showcasing behind the scenes of Louise Vuitton's fall collection. And who can forget the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A, which became the biggest event on the London exhibition calendar. The hype around Mademoiselle Prive at the Saatchi, has lead to extended opening hours in order for fans of Chanel to catch a glimpse into the label before the exhibition ends this Sunday.
