Archivist One: Three Faces. Archive Chalayan | Archivist Editions
Hussein Chalayan is archived this Edition.
Archivist was, in part, established to renew the museological dilemma of what the uses of the archive might be. Non-seasonal, it does not purport to sell its audience clothes; it prefers to showcase designers’ archives, important personal collections and emerging talent. Founded in 2012, 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. Previous issues have included the work of Shelley Fox, Wendy Dagworthy, Hussein Chalayan, Christopher Raeburn, Shirin Guild, Comme des Garçons Comme des Garçons and Chloé.
"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
