Dame Vivienne Westwood and Stella McCartney are among the well-known designers and labels on show in this ancient home.

Every business has taken over a room at Oxfordshire’s Blenheim Palace for the exhibition titled “The Icons of British Fashion.”

The 300-year-old edifice has already played host to several fashion shows, photo shoots, and catwalks, some of which were attended by royalty.

Fashion from the past through to the present day is being celebrated, with bespoke designs and loans from some famous industry names.

Each space along the visitor route will pay homage to a British fashion icon.

In the Great Hall, designs by the late Dame Vivienne Westwood and creative partner Andreas Kronthaler will be showcased.

Pieces from brands such as Christian Dior and Barbour will also be on show.

Kate Ballenger, the keeper of the palace and collections, said hosting the exhibition had been years in the making.

“We are privileged to collaborate with such incredible British designers and celebrate the creativity within the UK’s fashion industry.
