Voice for change exhibition, London 2015

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Monday, January 12, 2015

Locations, identities and practices that speak for nature and humanity.

"Climate change changes everything, yet outmoded perspectives pervade many of fashion’s artistic and business practices. This exhibition marks new paths being made through listening well and looking deeply into fashion’s role in holding up a mirror up to mark our times and to contribute to change. These voices and actions are part of a quiet revolution, taking place through UAL student and alumni work. We have gathered here a range of these ideas to form a cycle of thinking that connects us to the earth, ourselves and each other through fashion’s relationships and artefacts, its meaning and its matter."

Dilys Williams, Professor of Fashion Design for Sustainability

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.
