The well-visited private view event was already over a week ago but the exhibit featuring work by UAL students & alumni is on until the 29th March. It’s at 272 High Holborn WC1V 7EY, pop on in! My seam decoder pieces and booklet are exhibited (though sadly behind glass so one can’t flick through the booklet) as well as Susie Wareham’s natural dye work (she is also in the process of setting up a natural dye workshop in Cambridgeshire soon, eyes peeled), Mariana Negreiros’ conceptual pieces challenging the open/closed nature of garments, Tara Boath Mooney’s living moss collar (which was made years ago and looked like it had lost any trace of life until Tara put it outside in the rain) and many more thought-provoking pieces.
Locations, identities and practices that speak for nature and humanity.
“Climate change changes everything, yet outmoded perspectives pervade many of fashion’s artistic and business practices. This exhibition marks new paths being made through listening well and looking deeply into fashion’s role in holding up a mirror up to mark our times and to contribute to change. These voices and actions are part of a quiet revolution, taking place through UAL student and alumni work. We have gathered here a range of these ideas to form a cycle of thinking that connects us to the earth, ourselves and each other through fashion’s relationships and artefacts, its meaning and its matter.”
