(D)urability Day

Date: 2010

Principal Investigator: Kay Politowicz, with the TED team

Inspired by the ‘La Duree’ concept explored by fashion designer Martin Margiela, TED members developed a practical workshop to whitewash and overprint garments from our wardrobes.

The intention is to use practical strategies to preserve, conserve, extend, prolong and generally retain the qualities and even some of the emotional values, of the garments we have kept and wish to revive in our lives.

This was the first in an annual series of TED workshops, to hold practice-based collaborative workshops where we record and learn from each other.
