World War One Fashion Display at Leamington site Library

First Year BTEC Extended Diploma Fashion and Clothing students are currently working on a project centred on the First World War; the display at Leamington Library aims to provide background information and inspiration. The War was a turning point in many ways – military uniforms were designed to blend in, not stand out (no more Redcoats) and women found themselves in uniform for the first time, either in supporting roles at the front or in a range of civilian uniforms. Haute couture persevered, but even high fashion was influenced by the military look.

The display illustrates how certain colours are forever associated with the First World War. The soldiers’ khaki uniforms blended in with the sea of mud that was the trenches and No Man’s Land, whilst the bright poppies that grew in the wastelands provided an incongruous splash of colour that inevitably reminds us of the endless bloodshed.

New Grayson Perry book at Leamington site Library – go see the exhibition too!

Leamington site Library has a great new art book in stock: The Vanity of Small Differences by Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry. The book accompanies Perry’s exhibition of the same name, open until 11th May 2014 at the Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.

The free exhibition is composed of a series of six large tapestries (2m x 4m) which tell the story of class mobility and the influence social class has on our aesthetic taste. The tapestries were created alongside his 2012 TV series All in the Best Possible Taste and feature a number of people, events and objects he experienced during the filming.

In the television series, Perry went “on a safari amongst the taste tribes of Britain”, to gather inspiration for his artwork, literally weaving the characters he meets into a narrative, with an attention to the minutiae of contemporary taste every bit as acute as that in Hogarth’s 18th century artworks.

For more information click HERE to visit the website.

Do come take a look at the art section at Leamington Library, we have a great range of books for all to enjoy, not just those who study art. Whether it’s a home decorating project or you are interested in taking up a new crafting hobby, we have all the resources you need!
