A subversive project exploring the curation of archival and contemporary subculture collectables.

90 by the 90s is a Luxury Fashion and socio-cultural brand, through which students will develop contemporary models of digital exhibitions. At the heart of the project is a private collection of 90s Vivienne Westwood, consisting of over 100 pieces. Students will get the opportunity to work under the helm of Asiya Durrani-McCann (Luxury brand specialist).

With a special focus on brand building, this remote project will explore different volumes with a unique aim of weaving together historical exhibition with contemporary marketing channels.

Students will be required to have a high sensitivity for sub-culture and a strong passion for research development. They will be digital natives with a passion for image making, visual storytelling, journalism, photography, and art.
