I’m loving this interactive part of The Photographers’ Gallery website. It’s an online exhibition called Can’t Live Without It and contributors are asked to upload their (maximum of) three favourite fashion items and write some blurb about them.
Zigs Black from Germany submitted this well-worn tee, “Summer 1998. I’m buying a pair of jeans from my favourite store for casual clothing. At the till, they give me this horrible T-shirt for free. Summer 2008. I still own the shirt with the silly inscription, and I’ve been wearing and washing it so often it’s falling apart.”
K.K from Estonia posted a secondhand bag, “Bought for about a pound from an Israeli second hand shop, this tiny thing is made of real leather and has a velvet lining. It can be used as an evening bag but it fits a whole world and then some.”
Rather poignantly, Anonymous Lady posted a wig, “I lost my hair a few years ago and so wigs play a big part in my wardrobe. This is one of three wigs that I regularly wear.”
The exhibition runs til 14th September.
