١. Adidas by Stella McCartney Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear

Stella McCartney’s Spring Adidas collection was launched at Linley Hall in Victoria, which was transformed overnight into “Stella’s Gym.” It was fully equipped and completed with Olympians such as Allyson Felix and Victoria Pendleton.

٢. Alexander McQueen Spring 2005

McQueen dominated every London Fashion Week show – and as hard as it was to pick one show, the chess game was unmatched. Sculpted jackets, Edwardian ruff necklines, and fairy tale dresses cast strong silhouettes that recalled the actual pieces of the game.

٤. Chalayan Fall 2000 Ready-to-Wear

A coffee table was transformed into a dress as part of Hussein Chalayan’s Fall 2000 collection. The avant-garde designer staged a DIY fashion show with exceptional style, a collection that embodied art in motion.
