Manchester Art Gallery

Restriction and Release Fashion Show

Manchester Art Gallery has commissioned students from King David Sixth Form, Loreto College, Manchester College and Xaverian College to develop responses to the 14-18 Now exhibition Fashion & Freedom. They have been inspired by experiences from the First World War, exploring what was happening to women and making connections through the themes of restriction and release.

The commission involves students making outcomes that will become part of their portfolio with some being showcased at this fashion show take over of the gallery.
Join us for a stylish evening to celebrate Manchester’s Emerging Designers.
