Fashion Space Gallery at London College of Fashion is proud to announce Leather: Second Skin which coincides with and celebrates the 125th anniversary of Cordwainers at London College of Fashion. The exhibition will provide visitors with the rare opportunity to see new and commissioned work by Cordwainers by London College of Fashion students and alumni, alongside leading footwear, accessories and artefact practitioners and designers.
Visitors will step into a meditative and contemplative environment and be enticed by the rich sensory experience of leather, with its luxurious textures and distinctive smell. Work on display will oscillate between the sublime and the unexpected; from the perfect pair of stiletto heels to abstract sculptures which raise questions about the boundaries between art and fashion.
