An international fashion research project exploring the 'craft of use'

New Zealand Local Wisdom Photoshoot in Wellington

  • Kate and Katelyn | March 07, 2013

Announcing the next Local Wisdom community photoshoot! On Saturday 16th March from 10-4pm, we will be in Wellington, New Zealand in collaboration with Massey University to capture the craft of use through a combination of images and stories. Come and share your tales of garment use!

What should you bring to be photographed? Perhaps you have a garment that is…

• Is easily repairable
• Is worn regularly and has never been washed (and isn’t leather!)
• Is enjoying a third, fourth or fifth life
• Surprises you each time you wear it

• Shows or tells the story of how it’s been used
• Is worn in ways that defy the producer’s values
• Is adapted over and again in order to meet changing needs
• Has interchangeable parts that can be worn in different ways
• Is shared between people 
• Connects you to others
• Is worn in response to changing economic and environmental concerns
• Is made up of interchangeable pieces that can be worn in different ways
