Research Output per year
Trying it On is a film and fashion installation that provides insights into the role and practice of trying things on. The footage captures a group of older women (55-75) from Nottingham, UK participating in the Emotional Fit research project (Townsend et al 2016). The participants are recorded in various scenarios testing fit, modeling and presenting garments they have co-created with the researchers. The sequences reveal the women’s embodied responses to textile and dress objects through socio-material interactions. The film is augmented by 12 garment prototypes made through the collaboration; combining bespoke textiles, geometric cutting and minimal waste principles in support of garment longevity.
