Helen Storey

Another favourite example of mine in the way that fashion links in to the world of Art and beyond is the Wonderland project...Helen Storey is a Professor at London College of Fashion who in collaboration with scientist professor Tony Ryan have been working together to create real solutions for a sustainable world.

The Wonderland project crosses the boundaries between Art, Science and Fashion...their work is shown through an exhibtion of Disappearing Dresses made from dissolving textiles in water, and questions the environmental sustainability of the fashion industry and what happens to clothing after it is used. This is another great one for the textile technology students!
