Explore the links between fashion, fitness and body image, and see your body scanned in 3D

Fashion is more than just ‘what we wear’,  it is part of our identity and can have a significant effect on how we feel about ourselves and our body. At this event you are invited to look at your body differently using 3D scanners. There will also be a clothes swap where you can bring an unworn piece of clothing and contribute to our ‘story tree’ by telling us what your garment says about your own fashion identity.

Please bring a piece of unworn clothing with you. If you wish to book a body scanning slot in advance, please email Jenny:
