Worn Stories

by Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Is the evolution of a project which started in 2010 with the aim of collecting and preserving the stories incorporated by clothes. As explained in the introduction “We all have a memoir in miniature living in a garment we’ve worn … in all of these are encoded the stories of our lives.”

Considering wardrobe “an evolving archive of experiences, adventures and memories” and clothing a universal storytelling device full of memories and meaning, the curator, Emily Spivack, has collected stories from friends, family, strangers, and of the personalities she admired with the aim of making the readers think, and to get them to reconsider the role of clothing in their lives.

The publication contains a multitude of clothing-inspired narratives regarding, among others, well-known personalities such as curator Paola Antonelli, artist Marina Abramović, dancer Tiler Peck, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, author of Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison Piper Kerman, and professor Sherry Turkle.
