Here’s the problem we want to solve:
Fashion – both in industry and education – still follows colonial lines laid down during the Industrial Revolution.
We want to reinvent norms around fit through an experimental fitting session.You don’t need any design skills or fashion industry knowledge for this!
The idea is to explore an understanding of fit as a tacit knowledge – a way of knowing about fitting fabric to the body, that is outside of industrialised Western processes of garment production.
