About us

The Centre for Fashion Curation (CfFC) explores exhibition-making and archival research. CfFC engages with meaningful and experimental enquiries into theoretical and practice-based fashion curation. We're located within an international and inclusive environment.

The Centre provides a unique catalyst and platform for:

  • research and publications
  • exhibitions, symposiums and workshops
  • 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 Cultural Programming and most provide PhD supervision.
