FASHION AND TEXTILES FOREVER!

Thank you to all the artists and designers who generously pledged work to Fashion and Textiles Forever auction, to every person who lent their voice in support, to those who placed a bid, shared or started a conversation about why institutions like FTM need our support.


ABOUT THE AUCTION 

The Fashion and Textile Museum was founded by in 2003, by icon of British design, Dame Zandra Rhodes. Situated in the heart of fashionable Bermondsey Village, the Museum is housed in a beautiful and distinctive building, designed by renowned Mexican architect, Ricardo Legorreta, the Fashion and Textile museum is the only example of his work in the whole of the UK.

Worryingly, this seminal museum suffered greatly due to the closures imposed by the coronavirus lockdown losing 80% of it's income. 

To highlight this and support their recovery, I organised Fashion and Textiles Forever.
The auction, which began on Friday 23rd March was been conceived and run by myself whilst gladly supported by the Fashion and Textile Museum. The auction showcased over 80 works from a wide spectrum of disciplines.

Ceramicists, painters, fashion designers, illustrators and interior designers all took up the offer to pledge their support and represent the true breadth of the Museum's influence on the creative industry.

Featuring a great many beautiful and sought-after pieces, it was a clear reflection of the significance of the museum to all those participating.

Having graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2009, I have been operating as a freelance  multimedia artist in creative industry for many years and felt a huge need to give something back to FTM. After so many years of visiting their collections and being one of countless professionals who benefit from their resources regularly, we want to see it thrive for generations to come.


I am delighted to announce that Fashion and Textiles Forever raised a wonderful 

£11,212.00
