As part of our Fashion & Feminism exhibition (June 2018-June 2019), the Ulster Museum is excited to welcome the incredible London fashion design duo ‘Teatum Jones.’
They will be talking about their work in the fashion industry, and the inspiration behind their moving fashion film ‘Global Womanhood,’ never before screened in Northern Ireland.
Established in 2011 by Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones, Teatum Jones is a London based luxury label recognised for its modern, polished and bold aesthetic, speaking to smart, creative and confident women.
In 2018 Teatum Jones kindly loaned one of their most iconic designs – the poetic ‘Alex’ dress – for display in our Fashion & Feminism exhibition. This talk will be an opportunity to hear first-hand about the inspiration and process behind works such as this one, and to see it in person in our fashion gallery.
For their 2018 Autumn/Winter collection, the designers were inspired by a collective of 25 unique women who embody the Teatum Jones spirit - bold, confident, creative and smart – including women such as models Munroe Bergdorf, Kelly Knox, singer Foxes, editor Sophia Neophitou and activist Caryn Franklin.
By asking these women from different social backgrounds, different ages and different ethnicities the same three questions about their most instinctive human emotions, Teatum Jones have taken us on a journey through their moments of intense joy, sadness and hope. These intimate and sometimes raw conversations were recorded in a film first premiered during London Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2018.
This is a free event, however booking is strongly recommended due to high levels of interest.
