Dress & Emotion: The Exhibition showcases the cumulative results of a three-year long research project that seeks to explore the emotional and sensory act of dressing. The images and objects on display aim to depict themes of body image, identity/self-curation, representation and the messaging of dress.
The work included shows eight key ‘Outliers’ (defined as those with an established personal dress code that has evolved over time and as a result sets them apart as distinctive in terms of identity) representing highly diverse backgrounds and dress styles. Video documentary clips of four key outliers in their home environments, tell the stories of the evolution of their dress codes along with objects, people and places that acted as key influencers.
