Now launched – all new Local Wisdom website

Local Wisdom, the ongoing fashion research project exploring the ‘craft of use’ has added more tales of stories and images of resourceful and satisfying use of garments spread across twenty two categories… with more to come over the next year. 

The project is now in a new phase of work with the first of seven international design projects looking to amplify the craft of use to increase its take up beginning today.

The project’s international network is made up of:

London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, UK
California College of the Arts, San Francisco, USA
Parsons The New School, New York City, USA
Kolding Design School, Kolding, Denmark
