As part of our long-term plan to rediscover and reinvent the original spirit of Centre Point, we’re proud to announce a creative collaboration with leading print designers, Eley Kishimoto. The world-renowned fashion and design company has graced catwalks with the likes of Louis Vitton and Alexander McQueen, but now they are putting their creative flair towards capturing the spirit of Centre Point and bringing it to life in new ways.
As London Fashion Week gets under way, it’s a good time to look back at one of the key trends that influenced London in 1966 – one which you could argue has parallels with Centre Point itself.
When Centre Point was completed in 1966, it looked out over a London radically different from the city where plans had been drawn up seven years earlier. Back in 1959, London had yet to throw off the staid conventions of the 1950s. By 1966, it was the centre of world fashion and the ‘London Look’ was the big new thing. One woman, born in Blackheath, was largely responsible.
