Museum day...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Sunday, January 17, 2010
I had a great time yesterday exploring Bethnal Green's Museum of next project at uni involves what connects a person to their clothing, and entices them to keep it in their wardrobe and treasure it instead of throwing it away!! So I thought this would be a good start at looking to what children connect with and how this affects their habits in later life!!

I was most intrigued with a was from the 60's and is basically a giant paper bag with a hole cut out for the could either decorate your own or choose from a number of inspire the children and make their fantasies a little more realistic!!



Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
