“If art serves as a mirror to our civilization, what truer way is there to reflect in our zeitgeist, than to examine art in its closer form to us- in fashion and textiles, says Amy Lyn Eveleigh, Curator.

“Fashion and textile design is adept at fulfilling a traditional function of art by reflecting changes in contemporary culture. As much as art, fashion is a manifestation of the times- of its psychological social political and visual existence.
It has played an integral role in human expression and over the years has woven its way into contemporary art practice, says Amy. ” Fashion has become the medium for social commentaries by means of cultural belonging, sometimes aversion, a way to dismantle societal norms or ways of confronting the constructs that the clothes in which we are dressed impose.”
