The fashion show that proved the highlight of this month’s University of the Arts London takeover of Tate Britain hits Paris next week.
The Late at Tate event curated by young people working with the University Widening Participation team attracted nearly 9,000 visitors, making it the second largest Late at Tate in the gallery’s history.
It is the latest of the University’s annual iDent projects with Tate Britain, which explore notions of identity though fashion and jewellery design, supported by tutors and workshops at Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion.
The event brought together artists including LuckyPDF, Tero Juuti and Rinse FM’s P-Money, Monki and Brackles responding to the theme of Borders and Territories.
It culminated in a fashion show exploring themes of space, time, location, gender, sexuality and nationality featuring clothes and jewellery created by the young people who curated the evening.
Now the fashion show and its creators are heading for the Pompidou Centre in Paris, to bring the designs to an international audience.
