An exhibition curated by Alexander Fury for World Mental Health Day

To mark World Mental Health Day 2019 (10th October), White City House is hosting an exclusive fashion exhibition and auction in collaboration with mental health charities Hospital Rooms and the Isabella Blow Foundation. Curated by Alexander Fury, Fashion Features Editor at AnOther Magazine, the exhibition will provide a special opportunity for members of White City House to view items from Isabella Blow's personal couture collection that have not been seen in London since the groundbreaking exhibition Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty at the Victoria & Albert Museum in 2015. Hospital Rooms have commissioned artists, fashion illustrators and designers including Unskilled Worker, Giles Deacon, Gill Button, Rosie McGuinness, Velwyn Yossy, Beth Fraser, Cecilia Carlstedt and Fiona Gourlay to create unique artworks of the exhibited looks which will be sold in aid of the charity through an auction on Wednesday 9th October.
