Tuesday, 9th  September 2014 – New York, USA. Jenny Packham showed her SS15 Collection at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.  The show took place in Manhattan’s historic terminal Stores building, an industrial tunnel space curated by British Architectural company Grimshaw, with the support of the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign.
Inspired by Marilyn Monroe, this season’s collection featured crepes in pillarbox red and bold china blue, draped off the shoulder and clinched at the waist, alongside sleek silhouettes in textured metallic. A full length, form fitting gown in fine illusion tulle encrusted with waterfalls of sequins was inspired by the iconic ‘Some Like it Hot’ cocktail dress.
Voluminous skirts in saccharine shades of flamingo pink, pale jade and sugar almond in the lightest organza and appliqué lace and separates evocative of Marilyn’s pared down, off duty wardrobe.  A bold palm print was a reference to the lush bungalowed gardens of the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Marilyn famously called home.
Jenny Packham’s Spring/Summer 2015 New York Fashion Week show sees fashion and design come together for a celebration of the best of British.
The show will take place in Manhattan’s historic Terminal Stores building. British architectural company Grimshaw is partnering with Jenny Packham to curate this industrial tunnel space, with the support of the UK Government’s GREAT Britain campaign.
Both brands have a strong US presence. Jenny Packham, the independently owned British eveningwear and bridal label stocked at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, has shown on-schedule at NYFW for the past nine seasons and opened a US showroom in the city’s Meatpacking District in 2011. This Fall marks the completion of Grimshaw’s latest US project, the Fulton Center, a landmark transit station in the heart of Lower Manhattan’s revitalisation.
Grimshaw’s setting for the Jenny Packham SS15 collection is inspired by the form of the Fulton Center interior, which pairs an oculus with a bespoke art piece to bring light all the way down to New York’s every day runway: the subway platform.
Britain’s creative artists inspire the world,” says Danny Lopez, British Consul General in New York. “Our creative industries, including fashion and architecture, are essential to our economy, contributing £71.4 billion Gross Value Add (GVA) and sustaining 1.68 million jobs in 2012.
The GREAT Britain campaign is extremely excited to be supporting this unique partnership between Jenny Packham and Grimshaw during New York Fashion Week. Both companies demonstrate the depth and extraordinary quality of British talent, and are globally recognised for superior design and craftsmanship. UK Trade & Investment is delighted to be assisting Jenny Packham and Grimshaw Architects in growing their overseas footprint and supporting jobs and growth in the US as well as the UK.”
Friday, 11 April 2014 – New York, USA. Jenny Packham showed her 2015 Bridal Collection at Bridal Fashion Week today. The collection, available in store from end of July, was inspired by the photographs of 1930's British society photographer, Madame Yevonde, specifically a series of portraits of society ladies dressed in classical costumes, known as ‘The Goddesses’. 
Yevonde's stylised images of mythological heroines – Helen of Troy, Persephone, Venus - captured an ancient world of antiquity, within a modern and hauntingly beautiful treatment. The colours used; soft, tonal, always romantic, and the feminine way she played with light and colour to create a hazy, neoclassical ambiance, directly influenced the design and palette of this season’s collection.
Staged in an industrial venue against a blue sky backdrop, the catwalk show opened with a plus size model. Buttermilks, champagnes and warm blush caramel tones in sumptuous silk chiffon and ethereal tulle complimented traditional classic ivory. Celestial capes, whimsical tiered hemlines and exquisite veils added a romantic, mythical affection to the collection whilst delicate French lace was adorned with signature beading and twinkling crystals in an array of molten golds, antique metallic silvers and rich alabasters.
