In the FTM’s debut exhibition, seventy of the world’s most influential designers showcased their work. Each designer was asked to select their favourite dress from one of their own collections and describe the very personal reasons behind their choice, together with the inspiration and creative processes that were involved. The exhibition explored the psychological, sociological, and artistic elements involved in design, and gave the viewer access to the personal viewpoint and rarely heard words of each of the designers.

My Favourite Dressrepresents the first time so many leading names have displayed their work under the same roof and includes visionaries from Issey Miyake and Alexander McQueen to John Galliano and Oscar de la Renta. Central to the exhibition were the designers’ personal statements, reflecting the complete freedom of their choices.

My Favourite Dress opened on May 12, 2003 in association with Topshop, the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph.
