The Gallery presents Fashion & Freedom, an exhibition which sees some of today's leading female fashion designers explore the impact the First World War had on the changing role of women and fashion.

The Gallery presents Fashion & Freedom, an exhibition which sees some of today's leading female fashion designers explore the impact the First World War had on the changing role of women and fashion. Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary and Manchester Art Gallery, with support from the British Fashion Council, the exhibition will include contemporary pieces by Vivienne Westwood, Roksanda, Holly Fulton, Emilia Wickstead, J JS Lee and Sadie Williams.

Also featured is a collection of new works created by students from five fashion colleges on the theme of "Restriction & Release" and a series of specially commissioned original short films which complement the garments on display.

“Fashion is often dismissed as a frivolous thing, but in reality it is interwoven into our social and political history. This is why it is so crucial to tell this story at this important moment and demonstrate the powerful and vital role fashion continues to play.” Caroline Rush CBE, British Fashion Council
