Molly Goddard, talented star of the London fashion scene, has created an interactive exhibition with oversized tulle dresses hung from the ceiling of NOW Gallery. Each dress is on a pulley and can be raised or lowered to a height at which visitors can sit and embroider directly onto the dresses. On the gallery wall are posters with graphic embroidery instructions of for all abilities to follow and interpret. Get sewing and get inspired! This exhibition is well and truly on the Fashion Week’s fun list.
This major exhibition will explore the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s.
Think: Fashion, film, design, some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century and political activism.
Definitely worth a visit, I mean, who doesn’t love the 60’s?!
