Museum and college working together

CLOTHES designs inspired by artefacts at The Novium will form the centrepiece of a new exhibition at the museum.

Museum Without Walls features designs by fashion students from Chichester College, inspired by historic objects.

The students have been regularly visiting the museum and holding workshops in the gallery.

First-year fashion student, Katie Linton, said: “Working with the museum was a unique experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was a fantastic process, taking time to visualise how historic artefacts can be brought to life in contemporary ways.”

Course tutor Georgina Hooper said: “The collaboration has allowed the fashion students to identify with an object not necessarily so obviously related to fashion, yet to bring them to life through fashion. The collection shows the range of the students’ responses, innovation, conceptual thinking, subtly and vibrantly.”

Museum Without Walls runs until Friday, March 28. Visit for more.
