London Fashion Week label Meadham Kirchhoff is to be the subject of the Victoria and Albert Museum’s next Fashion in Motion Series. Following in the footsteps of Giles Deacon, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, the

design duo will host four free catwalk shows next month.

Taking place on December 6, the initiative aims to bring fashion to life through movement and Meadham Kirchhoff’s show will feature the duos personal highlights from their womenswear collections to date, including their Suddenly, Last Summer Spring/Summer 2011 collection and A Rebours of Autumn/Winter 2010, which featured flowing gothic dresses overlaid with floral painted biker jackets and veils in colourful hues.

on the event, the design duo, Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff, said: "We are very pleased to be involved with the V&A's Fashion in Motion series. When approaching every collection or garment, we secretly hope to make something worthy of being seen in a museum, so for us it is an honour to present a show comprised of hand-picked pieces from our favourite collections."

The Anglo-French duo founded their brand in 2002 after meeting at Central Saint Martins, since then the pair has become known for their theatrical, whimsical and intricately made collections. In 2010, the pair was recognised at the British Fashion Awards, picking up the Emerging Talent - Ready-to-Wear accolade.

As well as showing their womenswear collection during London Fashion Week, the duo also presents their menswear line at London Collections: Men, and this week unveiled their latest collaboration with Topshop, which features frilly baby doll dresses, mohair jumpers and sparking platforms.

Oriole Cullen, Fashion in Motion curator, added: “Meadham Kirchhoff are known for creating a fantasy world in their collections through their beautifully crafted garments and focus on fine detail. Their shows always contain an element of surprise and wonder, often with a hint of darkness and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring this experience to V&A audience.”

Admission is free to the Fashion in Motion series, but booking is essential, and tickets will be available from November 25.
