“Fashion is a subject that touches many aspects of our lives and and experiences; a touchstone, departure point and portal, it can lead to many journeys and facilitate limitless discoveries. Postgraduate students from the school of Media & Communication approach fashion as a material, something from which to mould meanings, messages and modes of expression.” Dr. Jessica Bugg, Dean of School
What we do at LCF is much more than make clothes. Our work is based on over a century of development and we drive change across an ever evolving global industry. By bringing together our varied disciplines and facilities, this new site gives us space to explore the possibilities of what fashion will become over the next one hundred years.
As part of the LCF MA19 season, Fashioned Worlds, presents work from a new generation of talent in fashion media, communication & performance. Encompassing MA work in fashion photography, media production, curation, fashion cultures and costume, this exhibition will take you on a journey through many worlds exploring themes such as mental health, sustainability and sub-cultures. The exhibition is on now at the Southbank in the warehouse space Bargehouse.
The exhibition is made up of four different worlds:
Taking inspiration from personal narratives and individual experiences Inner. worlds takes the viewer through a series of intimate reflected experiences.
Beyond the private sphere shared Worlds is informed by collective concerns. Here is a series of windows that allow creative practitioners – and us as viewers – to look into the world; observe, participate in and comment on what is experienced and perceived.
London College of Fashion is a world leading, specialist establishment. For over a century, we have been nurturing designers, artists and practitioners and communicators in all aspects of the fashion industry.
Working closely with technology, the impetus for work in other worlds is innovation. Through the desire to communicate fashion, media and performance through new languages and to connect with audiences in different ways, work evolves through research, prototyping or story boarding and a certain degree of playfulness.
