November 27–December 5, 2015 at Live Archives, 81 Mare Street, London E8 4RG.


Live Archives presents THE CIRCLE – a fantasy, an exhibition fiction, exploring the notion of glamour. Inspired by author Elizabeth Wilson’s essay A Note on Glamour, THE CIRCLE revisits the occult associations of glamour’s ancient Celtic roots and rejects the ‘shameless self-exposure’ of tabloid-driven infamy, garish sequins and bared flesh.

THE CIRCLE features pieces from Live Archives private collection, showcasing designers Alexander McQueen, Anne Demeulemeester, BodyMap, Boudicca, Damir Doma, Dior Homme, Jean Varon, Lanvin, Maison Martin Margiela, Preen, Quorum, Rick Owens and Vivienne Westwood.
