Major new fashion exhibition at Blenheim Palace in England

Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England, has announced the line-up of world-class designers, fashion houses and labels that will feature in its biggest exhibition to date, Icons of British Fashion, opening in March 2024.

The blockbuster exhibition, running from 23 March until 30 June, will showcase a creative curation of fashion clothing, accessories, archive materials, drawings, photography and patterns by an array of legendary designers – dramatically lit and displayed amongst the UNESCO World Heritage Site’s own priceless collections. 

Icons of British Fashion will celebrate fashion from the past through to the present day, featuring bespoke designs and loans from a Who’s Who of the fashion world. Confirmed names include:

  • Barbour
  • Bruce Oldfield
  • Jean Muir
  • Lulu Guinness
  • Stella McCartney
  • Stephen Jones Millinery for Christian Dior
  • Temperley London
  • Terry de Havilland
  • Turnbull & Asser
  • Vivienne Westwood
  • Zandra Rhodes 


Blenheim Palace will also be celebrating its own icon of fashion, Sir Winston Churchill, during the exhibition which coincides with the 150th anniversary of his birth. 

Kate Ballenger, Keeper of Palace and Collections, said: “We are incredibly excited to finally unveil what’s been years in the making; this exhibition will give visitors an insight into the fascinating world of British fashion in such a unique setting. 

Icons of British Fashion is the first of its kind at Blenheim Palace, and to be able to partner with some of the most widely celebrated designers and brands in the world to bring together a collection of garments, accessories and artefacts is something we’re immensely proud of.” 


Home to the Dukes of Marlborough since 1705, Blenheim Palace was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. Set in over 2,000 acres of ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland and designed by Vanbrugh in the Baroque style, the palace is also the birthplace of one of Britain’s most famous leaders, Sir Winston Churchill, and it was his father who described the vista, on entering the Estate from the village of Woodstock, as the ‘finest view in England’.
