The Centre for Sustainable Fashion has launched a climate change initiative to use the power of fashion to address on of the world’s most complex issues.
Curated by LCF’s professor Helen Storey, Dress for our Time is a series of installations taking place at the end of November, which will see digital couture designs displaying data on the impact of climate change on our world, if we dont act on it.
The design is in partnership with winning interactive creative agency Holition, who provided the data, while the actual dress is made from a recycled tent gifted by the United Nation’s high commissioner for refugees.
For those around Kings Cross St. Pancras station on the 26th November, you may find yourself walking by the first instillation. Kings Cross symbolises the gateway to Paris, who are hosting the United Nations Climate Change Conference.
You can join in the conversation using the hashtag #Dressforourtime
