The Little Black Jacket – Celebrating 150 years of the Tuxedo

On April 20, The London College of Fashion, one the world’s leading providers of fashion education and exponent of the multi-billion pound fashion industry,  has announced a collaboration with internationally renowned Henry Poole & Co of Savile Row and luxury fabric supplier Dormeuil to celebrate 150 years of a very British icon, the Tuxedo. This Collaboration has the purpose to re-invent the Tuxedo for the 21st century: The Little Black Jacket – Celebrating 150 years of the Tuxedo.

The organizations will be digging into Henry Poole’s archives to re-feature tuxedos  from as far back as the 1930s as well as displaying new versions designed by the students at the college.

 The exhibit will travel from Harrods and the Burlington Arcade in London to Tuxedo Park in New York, and then internationally after that. Visitors will have the opportunity to chart the Tuxedo, a garment that effortlessly sums up traditional values of Britishness, excellence, fashion and sophisticated style.
