Sky High Fashion Community Display
A group of 10 individuals from across the UK are currently creating their own interpretations of Army uniforms ranging from the Royal Engineer Balloon Section, the Royal Flying Corps, the Glider Pilot Regiment, and the Royal Air Observation Post Squadrons. The participants have been using our stories, artefacts and aircraft as inspiration to celebrate and commemorate some of the key operations and stories that the predecessors of the modern Army Air Corps undertook. They are depicting these on embroidered uniforms which will be on display at the museum in the new year. Below are some examples of the fantastic work being produced as part of this project.
Fashion graduates from the University of Huddersfield are taking part, as well as Hampshire based local costume designers, and embroidery enthusiasts, some of whom have connections to the Army and wider military. The group are holding monthly catch up meetings with Dan online to show and share what everyone has been creating.
