The mother country gets another fashion exhibition, this time from Louis Vuitton

It seems as though as Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty's doors close, several more open. We've already heard about the Chanel retrospective to arrive at the Saatchi Gallery in October and The National Portrait Gallery's fashionable Audrey Hepburn homage; a Yohji Yamamoto live-model show is being held at Live Archives as we speak, and it's just been announced that Louis Vuitton is about to join the club.

Aiming to give visitors a glimpse into artistic director of women's collections Nicolas Ghesquière and his team's creative process, the exhibition will look at style, creativity, technical skills, the maison's history, and how that works into Louis Vuitton's A/W '15 collection and Series 3 advertising campaign. Spanning three floors, across a 13-room 'journey', show-goers can expect front-row projections, live demonstrations, free posters and stickers to take away and add to your moodboard.

"In this digital era, fashion shows are diffused online and immediately accessible for the public," Ghesquière explained to Business of Fashion. "But it takes more than that to feel the ambience and share the intense creativity, energy and emotion around one show. This is what we would like to share with a large public worldwide. The exhibition is conceived as a total, physical and interactive immersion inside Louis Vuitton's [Autumn/Winter 2015] fashion show."

Series 3 will open on September 21,
