The event was a huge success and created such a buzz among the local art, design, and fashion communities. Thank you to all who attended the launch and made it filled with joy and elegance.
The Forgotten Art by The Fashion League is a showcase of traditional practices across a range of art and design mediums in order to link these distinct, yet related, disciplines together in an experimental and innovative brand launch. Handcrafted bags and scarves were exhibited alongside rarely seen early artworks by Flora Parrott.
We celebrated age old techniques that date back as far as the 19th century in order to preserve and encourage these unconventional ways of creating and not allowing them to fade away and be replaced by much colder, impersonal methods such as mass production. Heritage techniques are endangered and many artisan techniques are threatened with extinction. The Forgotten Art explores aesthetics, cultural significance, and heritage by honouring and dedication to the way in which, not just artwork, but also everyday items are made.
