A Walk in the Wardrobe

Via Modern Romantic, I learnt of "A Walk in the Wardrobe", an exhibit recently organized by a group of 7 fashion curators from the MA in Fashion Curation at the London College of Fashion. Operating under the name Glass-case, they aim to push boundaries and challenge the traditional museum approach to curation.

A Walk in the Walkrobe explores the intimate relationship between fashion and memory. Trying to go beyond the visual, it set out to trigger lost and forgotten memories through the sense of sound and smell. "A soundscape comprised of muffled noises—of what seemed to be people walking and rummaging through closets—was paired with bygone scents (the smell of moth and lilac) reminiscent of one’s grandmother’s wardrobe.
