Re:address – A Fashion Exhibition
22 – 27 March 2012

London College of Fashion MA Fashion Curation presents Re:address, A Fashion Exhibition exploring British vintage. Curated by fifteen students, the week-long exhibition will take place in Kingly Court off Carnaby Street.

Re:address will explore the contemporary perception of historical garments as precious objects; either as a relic of the past preserved in the museum or its revival into a second life as vintage clothing. With a focus on British heritage and design, Re:address will examine the motives behind the resurrection of objects from the past and will portray the eclectic landscape of vintage in London today. Juxtaposing pieces from the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martin’s archives, London vintage shops and from our own wardrobes, Re:address will represent ideas of nostalgia preserved from personal memories, relics acquired for inspiration and collective memory, and new style identities created by modern wearers who re-enact and re-interpret.

An exciting panel discussion chaired by Professor Amy de la Haye will take place at the London College of Fashion on the evening of 26th March. A panel of diverse experts will discuss their relationship with British vintage and the influence it has on current fashion. A question and answer session will follow. LCF students and members of the public are welcome to attend this free event.

Monday – Saturday, 10:00am – 7:00pm
Sunday, 12:00pm – 6:00pm

Admission is free
