Exceptional British Craft - Furniture, Homewares & Gifts

Makers House - The New Craftsmen & Burberry Partnership

Makers house The New Craftsmen and Burberry

Launching to coincide with Burberry’s London Fashion Week runway show on the 19th of September 2016, The New Craftsmen is proud to announce its partnership on Makers House, which will open to the public on the 21st of September.

Located in the heart of London’s Soho, Makers House will see Britain’s finest craft makers bring to life the inspiration behind the Burberry runway collection through a daily changing programme of activity and installations within the brand’s new show venue in London.

The 1 Manette Street location will be open to visitors from 21-27 September. The space will showcase original works from makers selected by The New Craftsmen. During this time, immersive experiences in the space will tell the complete story of the creative process and reference points that have informed the new collection. The programme also celebrates both brands’ mutual passion for craftsmanship, materiality and process.

“This week long exhibition aims to nod both to the design heritage that is so integral to Burberry’s identity, and to some of Britain’s most exciting creators, and the innovation and inspiration behind their work.”
– Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer
