the things people wear

Back at Phoenix School again to create an installation with all the students. The theme for international week this year was ‘Multi-cultural London’ and we made clothes to show the various cultures and traditions reflected in the clothes Londoners wear. From shalwar kameez to kimono, punk T-shirt to pearly king, peace-and-love jeans to kilt and sporran. Each piece is backed with a cardboard template so that it keeps its shape when pegged on the line. Nearly 200 items of clothing were displayed as part of an exhibition with religious artefacts.
