EXHIBITION | APPAREL DEPARTMENT

The exhibition is a window into the differing methods and 

approaches with which, the students across the three years 

engage. Fabric manipulations, construction and form are 

explored as a means to deepen discovery and analysis of 

the body’s physical and stylistic expression. These material-

ized thoughts in process respond and react to gender, identity, 

sexuality, sustainability and culture.

 

Each space displays a different aspect or approach to the 

multilayered development, ranging from paper and cardboard 

prototypes to muslins and process books. Fabric manipulations 

inform structure and completed configurations of dress are 

presented in ‘The Shop.’ This representation of a store is set up 

as a more polished arrangement and addreses how fashion is 

portrayed through a more commercial lens. A question can 

therefore be asked, is it the level of craftsmanship and skill 

that influences desirability and worth or the portrayal itself?
