In 2014, London's Design Museum will relocate to the former Commonwealth Institute in London’s Kensington district, effectively tripling its current space. To celebrate the big move, top brass at Calvin Klein dined with museum officials last night in the new location.

The event — which was hosted by British designer John Pawson (who will design the new museum's interior), along with the Design Museum’s director, Deyan Sudjic, and Calvin Klein Collection’s creative directors, Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli — was star-studded, to say the least. Celebrities like Freida Pinto, Rosario Dawson, Elle Macpherson, and Bianca Jagger enjoyed musical performances by violinist Charlie Siem, British band The New Look, and Jamie xx of The xx.

Teaming with Pawson to renovate the Commonwealth is Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas.
