Fashioning Our World exhibition opens at The Salisbury Museum
The Fashioning Our World exhibition at The Salisbury Museum will feature fashion items from the past which tell powerful stories of sustainability. Alongside a selection of clothes and accessories that have been repurposed, mended and loved, the exhibition will showcase work by well-known and emerging fashion designers, sustainability experts and students displayed on a series of miniature mannequins.
The exhibition has been co-curated with young people who have helped choose the objects on display, plan the themes and design the information panels. The exhibition is part of a recent project at The Salisbury Museum called Fashioning Our World which is engaging young people with sustainable fashion past and present, and supporting them to inspire the community to make positive sustainable fashion choices in the future.

Katy England, Fashioning Our World Project Manager said, “We are really excited about this exhibition. It has been amazing to work with the young people on this exhibition – they have so many ideas! We have discovered so many stories of sustainability in the collection, we can’t wait for people to be able to see them. We also really appreciate the enthusiasm from the fantastic fashion designers who have contributed to this exhibition. It is brilliant to be able to include their work.”
