Fashion Unraveled Colloquium: Dr. Jeffrey Horsley “Perfect Bodies for Imperfect Dress”
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 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.
