Just over two years ago, LCF Professor, artist and designer Helen Storey MBE RDI met with Michael Saunby, Open Innovation Manager at the Met Office. They talked about what our world would be like, if we fail to do enough in the face of Climate Change.
This is the story of how their worlds collided, and Dress For Our Time evolved into a project which uses fashion as a means to explore the science behind our changing world, and inspire people to think and act upon climate change in a new way.
“Nobody is afraid of a frock, and you have to use the power of that. If people think they’re looking at fashion, if they think they’re looking at art, they are open…if at the same time you can deliver something that is more difficult than looking at a frock, you’ve got people in the right space – to be open, to be curious and in some ways to be disarmed by beauty” – Helen Storey
