An international fashion research project exploring the 'craft of use'

Images and Stories from London's Carnaby Street

  • Kate and Katelyn | December 22, 2012

Getting near the darkest day of the year, we invited the denizens of central London to our most recent Local Wisdom Photoshoot on Carnaby Street. In the midst of the Christmas shopping hustle and bustle, an eclectic mix of people shared rich and varied experiences of their garments. 

Many thanks to all who helped and participated. Your stories and images are now up on the website!
