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

Sabrina Mahfouz closes the Craft of Use event

  • Kate and Katelyn | June 04, 2014

Poet Sabrina Mahfouz performed throughout the day out our event in March with work specially written in response to the ideas and practice of craft of use and notions of value, enoughness and fashion engagement. Her short readings quoting the public describing their use of clothing as captured over the last 9 year by the Local Wisdom project punctuated the day. Finally with this poem she closed the event bringing it to a spine-tingling crescendo of feeling and applause.
