British Fashion icons take over Blenheim Palace

Building on our role as ‘Place Makers’, we recently transformed the majestic Blenheim Palace into a vibrant showcase for the Icons of British Fashion exhibition. Running until June 30th, the unique exhibit takes visitors on a journey through decades of British fashion. Featuring an array of UK style stalwarts including Terry DeHavilland, Vivienne Westwood, and Barbour, we brought the site to life with a stunning selection of banners, displays, graphics and even dye-sublimated printed carpets!

Such a vast job was not without its challenges. Blenheim Palace’s listed building status meant all installations had to be done without fixing anything to the structure. To navigate this, we used aluminium frames to mount two large banners at the main entrance, while a large freestanding wall was stabilised by 200kg of ballast to prevent any contact with the palace’s original walls and allow 30 pictures to be hung. Additionally, the installation of temporary vinyl coverings around priceless antique cabinets required expert precision to ensure no damage was done to the artefacts.

Collaborating closely with Blenheim Palace and the iconic featured brands, six members of our team worked across three days to complete the job. Group Account Director Mike Hamling said; “At Moss, we strive not only to create visually stunning displays but also to respect and preserve the integrity of the historical venues we work with.

“This particular job meant we had to push the boundaries of what is possible with temporary installations. I’m very proud of what we’ve produced for this amazing exhibition and further strengthen our relationship with Blenheim Palace.”

Wherever possible sustainable materials have been used and once the exhibition has finished, Blenheim Palace will keep the frames for future use, while we will gather all the materials for recycling.

Kate Ballenger, Keeper of palace and collections at Blenheim said; “Once again we are delighted with the work the team at Moss has delivered for this iconic exhibition. The impact of their work is clear for all to see, and the combination of service, quality and support make them our first choice for any graphics work and signage.”
