This year Browns celebrates 40 years since Joan Burstein CBE â€“ known affectionately as’ Mrs. B’ by her colleagues and collaborators â€“ and her husband Sydney founded the brand.
In a special exhibition that ended on May ,Â curated and set designed by 4 friend Simon Costin, Browns’ history is seen through the fashion that it has supported. Bringing together 40 iconic outfits including a dress from Hussein Chalayanâ€™s buried collection, a full length Gareth Pugh A/W07 coat â€“ Costinâ€™s favourite â€“ and a series of images by Paolo Roversi of the Browns brand ambassadors (designers, models, actors, musicians) wearing the clothing on show, the exhibition tells the Browns story.
â€œWe shied away from telling it in a really obvious way; it becomes apparent as you walk around the exhibition and you see the people who have been involved â€“ theyâ€™re all the major players.”
Brown’s Focus T-shirts and more will be soon be seen at 4.
