The Centre for Fashion Curation, London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London challenges and develops theory and practices by demonstrating and enabling rigorous, innovative and experimental work within this increasingly popular and diverse discipline. It will provide a platform for research, exhibitions, symposiums, workshops and publications.
Garments are especially distinctive as a media in museological and exhibition contexts. Seemingly dramatic, or even mundane, they can be complex to display and interpret (without the animate body) and deeply poignant as evidence of lives lived.
Our members work in partnership with international, national and regional museums, galleries, archives, private collections, conservators and publishers to support the theory and practice of the discipline. Close links are also forged with the broader fashion and creative industries.
