With the changing landscape of design practice and an increasing interest in collaborative and multidisciplinary projects, it is an exciting time to support practitioners who seek to push their own practice, and forward-thinking collaborations between fashion designers, product, graphic and game designers, artists, architects, engineers and scientists through the residency programme. The residency was created to support designers working within fashion or associated fields, in particular those whose practice is experimental and hard to define. The residency seeks to encourage collaboration, and, where possible, partnerships with practitioners from other disciplines (e.g. science or graphics) can be facilitated to support the resident’s research.
London-based designers with an existing practice and a background in disciplines such as fashion, textiles, footwear and jewellery, with a strong interest in cross-disciplinary and experimental practice, were invited to apply. The selected resident will work collaboratively – assembling their own team or working with a team that Fashion Space Gallery helps to organise – bringing together the expertise of designers, technologists and scientists to produce visionary and impactful new work. We are delighted to announce Sophie Huckfield and Lucy Hutchinson as designers in residence 2019. Find out more about their practice here.
We shall announce the next call-out end of the year, please check back for updates.
