Until August 6, 2017
The exhibition presents the work of six designer teams who are thinking about fashion in a new way. Featuring some of the most innovative work being produced in the context of contemporary fashion, it focuses on commissioned, site-sensitive installations to offer an experience that is as immersive and affective as it is mentally stimulating.
Presented is fashion as an expanded field of practice that is determined by concept and context, whose practitioners work collaboratively and creatively between and across areas of design and art. All have backgrounds in fashion, yet their work demon rates how contemporary designers are increasingly drawing upon interrelated stimuli and methodologies.
