Celebrating 50 years of the shift dress, textile processes and collaboration
Members of seam textile artists/designers/makers have taken one shift dress pattern and creatively explored their craft to each make a dress that showcases textile design. The shift dress is a canvas for our ideas. Exhibiting at various venues around the UK in 2015/16.
It is 50 years since the mainstream adoption of the shift dress, from 1965 to now. To celebrate we are inviting everyone to collaborate and email us your photographs of your favourite shift dress that you, your family or friends have worn and tell us why it is your favourite.
Our idea would not have been possible without funding. We are very pleased to be awarded funding from the Arts Council, South Somerset District Council and Somerset Art Works.
