Piecemakers will present a behind the scenes look at the fashion industry, highlighting the makers and specialist tools behind London’s most renowned fashion designers. The exhibition will give visitors a rare insight into the work lives of seven established makers, each with a specialism within fashion production, focussing on the innovative tools and expertise which contribute to making some of the industry’s most coveted garments, some of which have been made for the likes of McQueen, Erdem and Vivienne Westwood.
On display will be recent works in progress alongside industry equipment such as vintage sewing machines and pleating templates. Each tool and garment will be displayed alongside text, imagery and candid studio footage which will demonstrate the steps and processes of making.
