Centre for Fashion Curation
The Centre for Fashion Curation (CfFC) is an invaluable resource for students interested in curating fashion or studying on the MA Fashion Curation at LCF. The Centre is embedded in the School of Media and Communication, LCF, but works with students across LCF and UAL.
The website provides background information on projects and news of upcoming events. Our blog on www.fashion-curation.com highlights a range of CfFC’s past activities, including reflections on exhibitions, events, and publications. There are also interviews with alumni of MA Fashion Curation exploring career trajectories after the MA.
CfFC’s academics work in the field of fashion curation and museums. They work on different types of projects, from exhibitions to installations and commissioning work. You can find out more about their work at UAL’s research information site called Research Online.
CfFC staff are happy to talk to students interested in curating fashion. Please email email@example.com with an outline of your idea, or questions you have about the MA Fashion Curation course.
