The Broken White: Pop Up Exhibition by Winchester School of Art

Times: Open Monday to Saturday

Location: The Brooks Shopping Centre, Winchester, SO23 8QY

Tickets: Free | no booking required

The Broken White is a sustainable collaborative textile installation created by students on the MA Textiles course at Winchester School of Art, and will be exhibited during Winchester Fashion Week in a pop up exhibition and shop in The Brooks Shopping Centre.

Using fabric waste from the fashion industry, 19 students have created individual design samples utilising traditional textile techniques such as stitch, weave and knit over an intense two-day creative workshop. These samples were then joined to create the final piece which measures 2 m x 1.8 m.

Alongside this centrepiece each of the 19 students will be exhibiting and selling samples of their work. You will be able to find printed textiles, wallpaper, scarves and innovative, sustainable and environmentally responsible new textiles created from waste material.

The University of Winchester hosts a special screening of fascinating and critically-acclaimed documentary Dior and I (90 mins, director Frédéric Tcheng, 2014).

Dior and I immerses the viewer in the world of the Christian Dior fashion house, with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ debut haute couture collection as its new artistic director – a true labour of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Revealing the extraordinary effort required to produce a collection with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand’s past, the film is also a colourful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons’ vision.

The film includes non-speaking cameo appearances by actresses Marion Cotillard, Isabelle Huppert, Jennifer Lawrence and Sharon Stone.

Dr Savithri Bartlett, Senior Research Fellow (Knowledge Exchange), who teaches the Cultural History of Dress and Sociological Perspectives of Fashion at the University of Winchester, will introduce the film and lead a short Q&A after the screening.

Join us from 18.00 for an informal drinks reception before the screening at 18.30.
