WHEN:

From 10th February 2017 to 4th April 2017
Closed Now, Free Entry

WHERE:

Austrian Cultural Forum London, 28 Rutland Gate, London, SW7 1PQ

WHAT:

"Ahead of London Fashion Week the Austrian Cultural Forum (ACF) London presents an exhibition exploring the intersection between fashion and art.

"Featuring artists and designers from Austria, Poland and the UK the exhibition explores the ways in which art and fashion can shape new positions and contribute to current social, economic, cultural and environmental debates. The pieces on display are more than just wearable and functional items; they can be seen as tools for reflection, experimentation and self-expression."

Photo: Artist Afra Kirchdorfer, who creates clothes which can be worn in seemingly endless different ways, resisting the notion of prêt-à-porter.
