This workshop invites participants to explore relationships between fashion and movement through the acts of wearing and repairing. Using existing garments the workshop aims to activate the tacit knowledge we each employ in the daily act of dressing and tending to our clothes.The physical, material and symbolic dimensions of wearing and mending clothing act as tools to re ect on the uid and dynamic relationships that constitute fashion. This practice-led approach draws attention to the very complex reality of fashion production and encourages critical re ection on the role of the wearer within the fashion system, both through making and conversing. The wokshop creates the space and exibility for the imagining of innovative and inclusive modes of ‘doing’ and ‘being’ fashion. After the workshop, The Fashion Studies Journal, comissioned a visual essay for their publication that can be viewed here.

The Fashions and Embodiment workshop was created in collaboration with Celia Pym for Goldsmiths Fashion Reasearch Unit.
