There was a workroom at the back of the exhibition. It was set up with a DVD of a fashion show, notes on how you put one together and static displays of what is in a working workroom .( I was interested to see that the sewing was done with Rasant thread.)
In the middle of the room was a creation area for children. Paper models, templates for the clothes and printed paper for the fabric. Kids and parents loved it.
On the way out I stopped off in the Gallery shop. Everything was too expensive to buy but I would really like to see if I could make some of the embellishments on the bags and the bracelets.
There is a page of more detailed images on the GoMA website and you can buy the catalog from the Gallery shop. There is a Curator's Essay available on line if you wish to read more in detail about the exhibition. (These are excellent notes for year 11 and 12 Fashion students.)
My next job is to put together an excursion for the year 11 students. They will not being doing the Fashion Unit until the beginning of 2010 but this is too good an opportunity to miss.
