New Fashion Commission – Asikara of Preston
In 2020 the Harris commissioned Laura Jeffers from Preston-based fashion brand Asikara to design a new dress for the museum collection.
The aim is to put this dress on display in a new exhibition we are planning for Spring 2021 called All Together Different. This dress is also part of our plans for the refurbished Harris – which we are currently preparing as part of the #HarrisYourPlace project.
Watch this film to find out the story behind the commission, and all about Laura’s career as a designer in Preston & her decision to set up Asikara.
You can also watch the following YouTube videos by Laura keeping us updated on the dress’s progress.
