Dress For Our Time has been shown at UK venues and internationally, below you can see its journey, included upcoming appearences and where it all began - St Pancras International train station.
We are proud to announce that the dress will be exhibited, and the latest Dress For Our Time film featured, at the 14th Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development Conference and Exhibition, where Helen will present the project to delegates.
The first ever London Peace Talks hosted by London's City Hall, bringing together a group of inspiring speakers from across different sectors. The dress was worn by model Louise, who descended the ramp that circumnavigates City Hall’s nine stories mid way through the talk. The project film was also shown to delegates.
The dress appeared on the famous Pyramid Stage worn by Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traoré, While wearing the dress, she sang her opening song Né So, which means “Home” in her native Bambara language – sending out a message of solidarity with refugees.
The dress was exhibited at the Science Museum London, here it digitally displayed the very latest UNHCR data - representing the movement of 8 million refugees around the world - created into an animation that is projected onto the dress. The data and the dress worked together to highlight the number and location of displaced people around the globe, humanising the numbers by using a point of light for every one hundred human lives
The dress was displayed at the UN Geneva as part of the TEDxPlacedesNations Transforming Lives event. There, the dress was on show not only to the one thousand people in attendance, but also to the thousands of people watching the event live online.
The first ever physical embodiment of the dress was installed at St Pancras International train station in November 2015. As the gateway to Paris - the city hosting the United Nations Climate Change conference COP 21 - many of the delegates passing through the station came face to face with the dress.
