Fashioned From Nature

April 21 2018 - January 27 2019

fashioned from nature

Where? Victoria & Albert Museum

What? The V&A will soon host Fashioned from Nature, an exploration of the complex relationship between fashion and nature which until now, hasn’t been exhibited since 1600. The fashion industry is ranked as the second most polluting industry in the world, so it’s no surprise that its toxic effects on the environment have ensured a complicated connection with nature. Fashioned from Nature will display fashionable dress alongside natural history specimens, spurring you to question the materials and sources used in the industry. Expect to see a pair of bird head earrings (c.187, the Calvin Klein Green Carpet Challenge dress worn by Emma Waston to the MET Gala in 2016 and a Grape Dress made with Vegea, a leather alternative made from grape waste.
