An international fashion research project exploring the 'craft of use'
Garments are used in many satisfying and resourceful ways influenced by a fusion of body, mind, habit, technique, stories and the piece itself. Local Wisdom has been gathering tales of how people use their garments since 2009 and taking portrait shots of the owners in their pieces. We are applying these use practices to inspire alternative ways to create, wear and think about fashion in an interdependent world.
