Objects Unwrapped: Memory of Clothes

This Study Day brings together students and staff from the University of Brighton’s Objects Unwrapped research group to reflect on the way that clothes have been used privately and publicly as a means to remember and to forget, to memorialise and to mythologise, to reconstruct histories and to create new imaginative forms.
All welcome – booking essential!

Requiem: Material/Memory

Torn. Moth-eaten. Tarnished. Degraded. Discarded. From the infinite potential of a pair of unworn shoes to a tweed jacket crumbling from years of use, our clothing resonates with memories of our lives. Displaying garments from The Contemporary Wardrobe Collection spanning the last two centuries, Requiem: Material/Memory explores the intimacies and contradictions of memory as embedded in fabric.

Come and Mend, Embroider and Discover your Fashion Stories

As part of their Collaborative Unit, MA Fashion Curation students are hosting a one day workshop that invites you to share stories and memories carried by clothing. You will then learn basic techniques to embroider lines from the stories and memories into your garment.  The workshop takes place at LCF, 10am on 9 May.

The workshop is part of the Fashion Narratives project which will culminate in an exhibition in the Take Courage Gallery on 14-16 June.
