Fashion Fictions: Try It Out, Try It On

92 Lower Parliament Street

Fashion Fictions: Try It Out, Try It On at Nonsuch Studios 5435

Drop in to our pop-up workshop to experience life in three fictional fashion worlds – or invent your own!

Fashion Fictions is an international project founded in 2020 by Dr Amy Twigger Holroyd, Associate Professor of Fashion and Sustainability at Nottingham Trent University. It brings people together to imagine, explore and enact alternative fashion worlds as an unconventional route to real-world change.

At this family-friendly workshop, you'll be invited to dress up in the style of a resourceful yet opulent fashion culture; document the story of a garment for future generations; explore an interactive game based on clothing poetry; and dream up your very own fictional fashion world. 

This event is part of Fashion Fictions World Tour, a trail around Nottingham’s Creative Quarter that showcases objects, images and films created to represent an array of fictional parallel worlds. These worlds are highly diverse, but have one thing in common: they all involve more sustainable and satisfying ways of living with our clothes.
