To celebrate the extension of major exhibition Fashion City: How Jewish Londoners shaped global style to 7th July 2024, Museum of London Docklands generously hosted a private event for Jewish Museum London and Museum of the Home guests on 20 March from 6.30 – 9.30 pm inviting them to their popular exhibition which uncovers the major contribution of Jewish makers to defining London as a fashion capital. The event celebrated a new collaboration between Jewish Museum London, Museum of London Docklands and Museum of the Home. Over 60 people attended the glittering evening with donors, Patrons, Friends, Stakeholders and partners who came to enjoy the exhibition and hear about the future plans of the museums.

Jewish Museum London is delighted to have loaned over 40 objects for Fashion City. Key objects on loan include a small travelling case shown in the opening display, which was used by a Czech child arriving in London as part of the Kindertransport, various objects relating to the tailoring trade, and personal photographs that are featured throughout. Fashion City has been extended to the 7th July with a free ticket offer for students throughout April and May to allow more visitors to experience this wonderful exhibition.

About Museum of London Docklands

The Museum of London Docklands is located at West India Quay in east London. Opened in 2003, it occupies one of the few remaining original grade one listed warehouses, built in 1802 to store produce from the West Indies.

A shared place in the heart of the East End, where stories cross and collide, it confidently shows how international trade, migration, enslavement and the river Thames were integral to shaping London and the world we live in today.

The museum is open 7 days a week, from 10am-5pm and is FREE to all. You can explore the Museum of London with collections online – home to 90,000 objects with more being added regularly.
