Live Archives is an archive in motion; past, present and future. We look at the concept of what an archive is, in it’s purest form, as well as its contemporary possibilities.
Live Archives started in East London during a collaboration with well-respected vintage boutique and private archive, Strut London. By combining our background as creative consultants and innovators, with their collection of directional pre-owned clothing we explored new angles in contemporary past-season fashion; together, with other notable collaborators photographer James Ari King, stylist Amanda Hanson and curator and exhibition maker Jeff Horsley, we hosted a series of small experimental events and exhibitions throughout 2015, defining us as an important research source for the fashion industry.
Live Archives is still in motion, and in the same collaborative and innovative spirit we will be officially launching soon.
