Manchester Identity: Unworn

Location: Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester, M2 3JL

This is a pop-up clothes swap event with a difference!

You are invited to bring your unwanted garments for swapping but also bring along treasured clothes (not for swapping!) to share your stories of why you love them. A collectively created story tree will then take shape.

This event is interactive and aims to give women a creative space where they can share their stories through the lens of fashion. Participants can update their wardrobe by swapping clothes, have fashion styling advice on site, and have a chance to do a fashion photo-shoot to capture the moment.


Led by Dr Shuyu Lin, a Senior Lecturer in Fashion Business and leader of the Fashion Business Management research cluster at the Manchester Fashion Institute, Manchester Metropolitan University.

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.

Time: 11.00am - 2.00pm

Free event. Tickets available on eventbrite.
