Archivist One: Three Faces. Archive Chalayan | Archivist Editions
The Archivist has a unique view of the fashion industry. Non-seasonal, it does not purport to sell its audience clothes; it prefers to showcase designers’ archives, important personal collections and new emerging talent. Founded in 2012 by Jane Howard and Michael Harrison, the multi-media project is not confined by format and takes no advertising. It is inspirational rather than aspirational and seeks to explore the cyclical nature of fashion; to change perceptions, reinterpret and present to a new generation.
Hussein Chalayan is archived.
"Archivist does not sell clothing, and it especially does not sell the new. What will unfold over the coming issues will be the different ways the past can be retrieved and celebrated and how various the ways are." -Professor Judith Clark
