In July, my college was approached to have upper year textiles students to take part in a competition to design a piece for the Fashion Freedom exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery. Unlike the other 3 colleges involved our course decided to team up, luckily I managed to get in a team with the two sickest gals ever; Katie and Helena.
Long story short, inspired by pigeons and their various parallels to suffragettes of the time, we managed to get through each round and finally we are just a week away from the fashion show at the Gallery on Thursday 10th November.
Whilst we have created a garment it will not physically be shown at the gallery as we have incorporated it into a fashion film, of which you can see a few stills below. We all take media of photography and so it felt right to use a visual representation to get our point across, after weeks of hard work it is crazy we have almost finished!
We have also been chosen from the winning groups in our college to take part in a film which will be featured on the Manchester Art Gallery and 1418-now websites and will explain our pigeon obsession just a little better.
The event is free and on Thursday 10th November from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. So it would be great to see a few faces supporting the Future Creatives movement.
