Description
Inspired by the MFIT exhibition Fashion Unraveled and organized by MFIT and the Fashion Research Network, this one-day colloquium explored the concepts of memory, wear, and imperfection in fashion. Speakers focused on imperfect garments and the significance of dressing as a habitual, intimate, and ephemeral act.
Jeff Horsley originally trained in theatre design and subsequently held the positions of curator, Manchester Art Gallery, and head of exhibitions, Manchester Museum. Jeff is currently Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Centre for Fashion Curation and Course Leader, MA Fashion Curation, both at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London. Jeff's research interests include the history of fashion exhibitions and innovative approaches to the presentation of fashion in museums.
