Worn

Wardrobe Workshop
[virtual edition]





All of us live our lives in our clothes. They therefore act as biographies, telling the stories of our changing identities, bodies and memories over time. But, in the everyday rush of consuming, wearing and throwing away our clothes, it can be easy to overlook the histories they accumulate as we own and wear them over time, as they become worn. Created in response to Covid-19, Worn’s virtual Wardrobe Workshops ask participants to consider and share their clothes’ biographies through a series of conversations, interactive and creative activities. Their purpose is to unveil the depths of our personal relationships with clothes, and, in doing so, to prompt an urgent revealing, rethinking and revaluing of their importance.

Workshops
for Higher Education





Worn’s workshops for higher education contexts are developed in collaboration with academics and institutions. They engage with interdisciplinary fashion research and teaching through interactive virtual, or physical, workshops that explore academic clothing contexts and concepts in relation to students’ own clothing experiences. Ongoing collaborations include workshops for undergraduate and postgraduate modules by Dr Cordula Van Wyhe, Senior Lecturer in the History of Art Department at the University of York, which involve activities and conversations on themes such as clothing and identity, the body and use in relation to students' own clothes and objects in costume and textiles collections.

Workshops
for Consumer Research






Commissioned by responsible start-ups and brands, Worn’s consumer research workshops help clients generate garments with longevity by giving them the chance to learn from the clothes that their consumers already love. Through carefully curated activities and conversations, these workshops create opportunities for consumers to reflect upon their relationships with their wardrobes, while using the insights they share to inform a brand’s future product design, development and production, and their approach to storytelling. In this way, our consumer research workshops make sure that more of our clothes, past and future, make it to “worn” status.
