The Civic in the town centre have a great fashion exhibition currently on show. It is based around the First World War and how fashion has changed in both women’s work and lives. All pieces have been commissioned by 1418-NOW and has come from the Manchester Gallery, all the way to Barnsley. They are a range of both designer pieces, such as Vivienne Westwood and Roksanda, and also university graduate pieces from Westminister, Salford and more. Some had a more literal sense of the theme whilst others had a more deeper meaning and focused more into one aspect. I really recommend visiting the exhibition to make your own opinions on it, but there’s no doubt it’s an extremely interesting visit.
