A Dress For Our Time - film

A Dress For Our Time


'“Using the power of fashion, science and wonder to communicate and act upon some of the world's most complex issues of our time.”

Dress For Our Time is a project by Professor Helen Storey, an artist, designer and researcher at Centre for Sustainable Fashion a University of the Arts London research centre based at London College of Fashion.

The project centres around a dress made from a decommissioned tent from a refugee camp in Jordan. We created a short vision film, to bring the project to life, as part of the launch at St Pancras Station at the beginning of the COP Paris climate talks.

Our involvement in the project has continued, documenting The Dress’s journey around the world’s museums, art galleries and events and the work being done with refugees by Helen in her role as ‘Artist In Residence’, working with women and girls at Zaatari Refugee Camp.

Over the last three years we have created a SERIES OF SHORT DOCUMENTAIES and we are currently developing a full length documentary - MAKING PURPLE .
