Imaginary Conversations

22 June - 20 October 2024

The story of how a duchess inspired a fashion collection by Erdem Moralioglu.

Set in the guest bedrooms at Chatsworth, Imaginary Conversations celebrates the legacy of Duchess Deborah Devonshire and explores how she inspired the Spring Summer 2024 collection of fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu.

As part of their research process, Erdem was given access to the extensive archives at Chatsworth. Archival fabrics from the collection, including historic curtains that once hung within Chatsworth, inspired the shapes, silhouettes and styles of the collection. Throughout the exhibition, the boundaries between the house, the duchess’s archive and Erdem’s own collection will overlap.
