The University of Westminster (London) has announced that this fall, they will host a major fashion exhibition dedicated to menswear. Covering the last 120 years of men's fashion the majority of garments in the exhibit have never been seen on public display.

The show titled Invisible Men will present designer garments alongside military, functional, and utilitarian outfits. Drawing exclusively from their personal archive the exhibition will showcase work from the best contemporary designers. It’s been confirmed that pieces from Dior, Vivienne Westwood, and Jeremy Scott will be displayed.

Arranged into twelve sections that exhibition will explore various themes. The central theme will examine the “fetishistic appreciation of the working man” and its influence on fashion. Invisible Men will reference the clothing of seafarers, soldiers, athletes, firefighters, road workers, and explorers.
