Summer Window 2017
work from the collections
For our 2017 Summer Window we have taken themes of consumerism, excess, austerity and artists’ use of clothing and accessories to disseminate their work and ideas in multiple editions.
The title and aesthetic of this display takes its lead from the window dressing of charity shops where possessions are recycled to provide cheap alternatives to the high street and generate income to aid charitable causes.
