This year the Glasgow School of Art Fashion Show coincided with the centenary of the famous Mackintosh building at the Glasgow School of Art, and as such we used the archives as inspiration. I was especially interested in a short film made in the 1930s called “7 till 5” by Norman McLaren. He is known for his early experiments with animation and this film documents a full day in the Art School. This got me thinking about how art students today react to the Mackintosh building, and how we all dress up, “playing the part” of art students. I therefore set out to make ridiculous ‘studio wear’ for artists working in the Mackintosh building today.
