Creating Pandamonium with Annie Morris

Clothespins dress by Annie Morris for Burberry

Contemporary artist Annie Morris is creating a sculptural dress for 2012’s World Wildlife Fund Pandamonium 2.   The artist is offering an amazing opportunity to any students with sewing or embroidery skills, to assist her in this exciting project.

The finished dress will be shown as part of a unique catwalk show of wearable sculpture, to raise funds and awareness for the World Wildlife Fund’s 50th anniversary.   The event, being held on March 31, will show work by 25 leading artists, architects and fashion designers including Grayson Perry, Zaha Hadid, Richard Wilson, Idris Khan, Hussein Chalayan and Annie Morris.  Following the event, there will be a public exhibition of all pieces from the catwalk show.

If you would like to be involved in this exciting and worthwhile project, please contact Dea Vanegan
