On Wednesday, 29 March, MA Fashion student Smadar Eve Zohar will present an improvised performance of a fashion film-making process, part of the MA Fashion work-in-progress exhibition “Fashion Narratives” (currently on in the Constance Howard Gallery at Goldsmiths). RSVP on Facebook
Smadar Eve Zohar – Fashion Film Generator
Over the course of the three week exhibition you will be the audience to a process of a transformation; the narrative starting point is a visual research on pockets and their contemporary political contexts. This is visible throughout the first week of the exhibition. On the 29th of March 7pm, you are invited to witness a performative film rehearsal devised and improvised using the pocket research and props. The rehearsal narrative will be filmed and presented for the third week as an improvised and provocative fashion film.
The “Fashion Narratives” exhibition will remain open until 7 April on Wednesdays/Thursdays/Fridays. More photos of the exhibition can be found on our Facebook page.
The second issue of the MULTIPLEXER zine, published by the Vehicles for Experimental Practice research group at Goldsmiths Design, is ready to be launched. A party for the occasion, including a film screening, will take place in 12 Laurie Grove on March 22, during the Postgraduate Open Evening at Goldsmiths.
The Constance Howard Gallery and the MA Fashion programme are pleased to invite you to Fashion Narratives, a display of interactive works in progress that explore the social and cultural contexts of fashion. The projects look at the virtual material and embodied modes of communication in fashion and the shifting relationships between these. They propose new narratives and approaches to practice that challenge the traditional boundaries and perceptions of fashion.

Postgraduate open evening: 22 March 4-7 pm
Open to the public: 17 March-7 April, Wednesday/Thursday/Friday, 11 am- 5 pm
