Established in 1998 by Australian-born designer Judith Clark, this little gallery is the only experimental space in London devoted entirely to the display and study of dress and fashion. Accorded charitable status owing to its educational aims, this gallery allows rare close-up access to the work both of contemporary designers and of international private collections. As well as the opportunity to mull over the historical and conceptual themes, visitors have at their disposal a small library and bookshop, a catwalk slide archive and a collection of magazines and exhibition catalogs. The gallery directly helps many of the up-coming young designers who are the key to the success of the British fashion industry. As the Judith Clark Costume Gallery is a non-profit making organization, admission is free. The gallery depends entirely on charitable donations to survive.
