University of Westminster Menswear Archive

  • City of Oxford College

The City of Oxford Fashion&Business Club visited the University of Westminster for a Masterclass that began with a tour of the Westminster Menswear Archive, a new fashion resource based at Westminster’s Harrow campus.

The University of Westminster Club joined the Oxford Club for the tour – given by the collection’s curator Danielle Sprecher – which gave the young people the opportunity to view vintage designer garments and unusual military and workwear pieces, observing details in their construction and finish.

The Oxford Club then spent an intensely focused two hours in the university’s print studio, working with print specialist Timothy Bartholomew on screen prints with interesting stencil shapes and heat transfer printing on to synthetic fabrics. The two groups then joined up again to tour the fashion workshops, where they admired the students’ impressive degree work.
