Make Do and Mend Finale

Last week was the finale of the Make Do and Mend project.  The Museum and University held a special event to reunite the students and members of Birmingham Air Raids Remembrance Association BARRA.  The event was a great success – it was wonderful to see BARRA members and students talking about their work.  

We also announced the winner of the project.  Scott Gethings patriotic ‘Dig for Victory’ pinafore will be the first outfit from the project to be displayed in the new Birmingham History galleries.  When the new galleries open you will have the opportunity to see all the students work as a fashion style ‘look book’ will feature as part of the display.

Birmingham City University have a small exhibition of photographs taken by fashion photographer Joe Miles.
