Inside Arc

Inside Arc

  • 11 May — 28 July 2018

Fashion Space Gallery, at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, presents Inside Arc, an exhibition drawing from the rarely-seen garments, accessories and other items amassed into a comprehensive archive by designer Jennefer Osterhoudt and stylist Nick Royal.

The Arc is a working archive which Jennefer has personally built during her career, and features a lot of work by John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, with whom she worked closely with, as an accessories designer in Paris during the 1990s. Co-created by stylist Nick Royal, the archive keeps growing and features a vast array of vintage items and contemporary designer pieces.

The exhibition highlights the eccentricities and rarities from this working archive, showing elaborate toiles in luxurious fabrics, revealing the complex and labour-intensive techniques used by high fashion to create rarities such as the ‘Evita’ jacket worn by Madonna in her 1994 ‘Take a Bow’ video.

Each piece in the archive has been collected throughout Jennefer’s career and life in fashion, from personal items sourced from charity shops, rare handmade invitations, and 100 backstage passes from her 100 shows. Crafted prototypes and toiles that made it into production are being shown alongside images of her own vast shoe collection.

Footnotes: Intimate Stories of Shoes

  • 9 May — 31 July 2018

The exhibition will, for the first time, reveal objects from London College of Fashion, UAL’s eclectic archive which includes 1930s orthopaedic footwear, silk slippers from the 1800s and even a shoe made for a sheep.

Artists Eelko Moorer, Ellen Sampson, Linda Brothwell and Laila Diallo have produced new works inspired by the remarkable history of the selected shoes revealing new interpretations of historic objects under the guise of five categories – Scale, Balance, Fragility, Singled Out and Common/Uncommon.

The selected shoes will form a trail through the historic east London property, which has 500 years of different period rooms, from 1530s to the 1980s, making it an ideal venue in which to chart the history of the exhibits. Included in the exhibition is a small Victorian girl’s shoe which was found under the floorboards at Sutton House dating back to its time as Eliza Temple’s School of Etiquette for Girls.

The exhibition will be open to the public at Sutton House from 9 May 2018.

Curated by Alison Moloney, from the Centre for Fashion Curation, a research centre based at London College of Fashion, UAL with archive co-curation by Amy de la Haye, and supported using public funding by Arts Council England and sponsored by Kurt Geiger, the exhibition explores the cultural significance of shoes through the artists’ interpretations.
