Fashion-In-Residence: Mapping the landscape of local clothing systems.

Fashion-in-Residence is a study of fashion systems at the neighbourhood level, using two locations in East London to understand how local conditions relate to individual behaviours and the shaping of society.

Katelyn’s research draws on methods of ethnography, participatory art and mapmaking to study issues of radical sustainability, everyday fashion practices and local fashion systems. Katelyn is a Lecturer in Fashion and Sustainability within the School of Design and Technology at the London College of Fashion. She was previously designer and co-director of the fair trade knitwear and accessories brand, Here Today Here Tomorrow and worked with Kate Fletcher on the international research project, Local Wisdom.
