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.
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, are 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.
The next call for applications will open in early 2019
