Centre for Fashion Curation (CfFC)
A world-leading centre in the field of fashion curation.
The Centre for Fashion Curation (CfFC) is an international centre which explores all elements of exhibition-making and archival research. Situated within an academic and inclusive environment, the Centre engages with meaningful and experimental enquiries into theoretical and practice-based fashion curation.
The Centre provides a unique catalyst and platform for research, exhibitions, symposiums, workshops and publications, and collections-based enquiries.
Research, teaching and learning are embedded within the practices of the Centre. CfFC’s academics lead and teach on the MA Fashion Curation and most provide PhD supervision.
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.
