To celebrate the first anniversary of the gallery, Judith Clark Costume showed a group exhibition entitled Cape Chic to coincide with London Fashion Week. The exhibition was divided into four sections: Evening – Bohemian – Protective – Future. In total a selection of twelve capes were on view. Added to historical (earliest cape dated from 1908-1911) and ethnic examples (Turkestanian head-dress from 1980), contemporary examples to this theme included pieces created by Hussein Chalayan, Issey Miyake and Olivier Theyskens.
