Our highly-regarded Textiles for Fashion & Interiors course will be participating in an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, which will run alongside the retrospective exhibition of luxurious art textiles by the designer Marian Clayden. The exhibition – Textiles: Surface and Structure – will display the work of some of the course’s high achieving graduates, who have gone on to forge successful careers in the textiles, fashion and interiors industries. Work by the course leader Sharon Ting will also be on show at the museum.
The exhibition will be curated by our Senior Textiles lecturer Diana Harrison and the globally respected historian Mary Schoeser, who has recognised our Textiles for Fashion & Interiors course as being unique, high quality and rich in textile history. It will showcase the range and breadth of work produced on the course, with an emphasis being placed on the bold and effective use of colour.
This exhibition will form a one-of-a-kind collaboration between the Fashion and Textile Museum and a university. It will be running as part of the museum’s A Festival of Textiles series, and will be on display from 11 March to 17 April.
As course leader Sharon Ting explains: “The work in this exhibition expresses the breadth of our creativity at this moment in time. We hope people will enjoy looking at these beautifully crafted surfaces and structures, and look forward to developing more inspirational textiles with the outstanding students on our course.”
