Piecemakers Exhibition Tour with Curator Susanna Cordner

Exhibition curator Susanna Cordner will guide visitors through selected themes and ideas behind Piecemakers.

The exhibition explores the makers and manufacturers behind the seams of London fashion, and the tools and techniques they use to piece together the work of brands and designers. Some of them work exclusively with clothing, while others also apply the same production methods to other forms of output, like art, interiors and costume. Their tools and working spaces give insights into the processes behind crucial components of our clothes, from how buttons are made to how pleats are pressed.

Essential and expert, but rarely credited, these creators collaborate with and enable the work of famous fashion brands. This exhibition features seven examples from in or around London, to highlight the ways in which – whether or not you hear enough about it – designers and brands in this city call on the expertise of nearby collaborators to piece their work together.
