Common Thread surveys the works of fashion designers and the journey taken to develop their works. The works featured in this exhibition draw from the designers’ cultural roots — all while pushing the boundaries of the traditional. As a result, the works also act as a reflection of the designers’ personal relationship with their cultural backgrounds.
Rather than following the format of a traditional fashion show, this exhibition focuses on showcasing the creative process of students, placing importance and priority on the oft-forgotten behind-the-scenes development of each work. Through allowing viewers to peek behind the curtain, the students hope to develop an appreciation of textiles and a deeper understanding of fashion’s connections with culture. The exhibition invites the audiences to consider that culture is never lost, instead it grows and evolves.
