Centre for Fashion Curation (CfFC) is a world-leading centre in the field of fashion curation.
It responds to the increasing demand for academic research into, and exhibitions of, fashion. It provides a unique catalyst and platform for research, exhibitions, symposiums, workshops and publications. We actively forge close partnerships with global, national and regional museums, galleries, archives, private collections, conservators, creative and commercial industries and publishers to support the theory and practice of the discipline in its broadest sense.
Garments are especially distinctive as a media in museological and exhibition contexts. Seemingly dramatic, or even mundane, they can be complex to display and interpret (without the animate body) and deeply poignant as evidence of lives lived. It is this often ephemeral nature of fashion that we aim to explore and present in our research outcomes.
