material memories: restaging the eCHO project

QUT Art Museum will play host to a unique fashion exhibition from 13 July until 22 August – Material Memories: restaging the eCHO Project.

The exhibition came about after a collaborative research project led by QUT fashion in 2003 after being given a donation from the National Trust of historical garments dating back to the last century. The garments were in a state of degradation and their history and origins were unknown, therefore providing an opportunity for designers and those in the fashion industry to interpret the garments and give them new life.

The pieces were given to international fashion designers including Easton Pearson, Akira Isogawa, Toni Maticevski and  Country Road, as well as staff and students from QUT,  RMIT Melbourne, London College of Fashion and Otago Polytechnic, New Zealand. Each created a new piece, either by re-working the existing garment, or by taking inspiration from the original to create a new garment all together.

The exhibition showcases these unique and beautiful pieces and aims to invite reflection of both the past and future of fashion. This is an exhibition not to be missed by true fashion lovers!
