The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series is a new annual Halloween event designed to pay homage to the revolutionary Madame Clicquot. Famously widowed (“veuve” is French for widow), Madame Clicquot single-handedly took over her late husband’s champagne business, pioneering several industry innovations leading to the creation of a global icon of creativity and audacity – the House of Veuve Clicquot.
Guests can experience the immersive exhibition (in the abandoned site The College, formerly home to Central Saint Martins), curated by renowned photographer Nick Knight, founder and director of SHOWstudio. The exhibition will include:
- Premiere of five SHOWstudio commissioned haunting fashion films
- A series of curated rooms by pioneering artists, filmmakers and designers including Lady Amanda Harlech, taxidermist Rose Robson and fashion designer Gareth Pugh
- Veuve Clicquot tasting experiences available for purchase in advance
