Multiple Clothing

Launched on 08 March 2005

Stephen Willats began his project Multiple Clothing in 1965 as a strategy to engage directly with the fabric of society, exploring clothing as a very basic externalising of the self. Made up as kits, the clothing designs were created out of many small units that zipped (or later Velcroed) together in various formations to make multiple garment types – including simple shift dresses and jackets.
