Forum For Fashion Design & Visual Art Practice

Hub Coordinator: Charlotte Hodes, Professor in Fine Art

Based at London College of Fashion, this research hub is broad in its remit with the aim of supporting unexpected connections and conversations between researchers engaged with practice from both the field of fashion design, costume, curation and visual art practice.  It celebrates the ever increasing interrelationships between these areas and the way narratives of process, which are often hidden, are a means to generate understanding and innovative approaches to research.

Central to the hub is reflection upon process, both analogue and digital to include the hand craft, drawing and digital technologies. These include a focus on the body, dress and material. In addition, it encompasses an engagement with artefact and archives within UAL collections and beyond which form an important resource for many of the researchers involved in this hub.

The hub draws from a wide range of expertise within LCF including creative practitioners, designers and curators. Students, staff and researchers from across the University are welcome to participate.
