When we got talking with a handful of Fine Art and Culture Criticism and Curation students who were working on a project with Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Rönkkö and Luke Turner a few weeks ago, we started to think about how to best team up Fine Art and Fashion. So, hoping to act a little bit as a catalyst for collaboration between pathways, we shot the collections of 15 Fashion Design graduates alongside the art pieces of Fine Art graduates. Many looks were pulled straight off the press show’s runway, on the last day of Degree Show One’s exhibition. The art works would be deconstructed and wrapped up the following day; it was a one-shot-only moment.
But, instead of coupling up just before graduating, what we would like to see more of are many projects between Fashion and Fine Art in the years to come. We’re certain that conversation and longstanding relationships between pathways will prove fruitful for culture at large; and we can speak from experience, as 1 Granary came to life as we began to collaborate with departments outside the fashion studios. So, let’s keep propping open those studio doors of other pathways…
