Project about fashion beyond sight ends with a large exhibition

The international fashion project "Beyond seeing" was about experiencing, discussing and creating design from a non-visual perspective. The result is a touring exhibition, the first stop was Paris.

The project purpose was to explore how people with visual impairments experience fashion and thus find new methods of design.

"It has been an eventful year when we, together with people with experiences of vision impairment and design students from different fashion schools, have tried to experience, discuss and design fashion from a non-visual perspective," says Stina Randestad, student at the Master’s Programme in Fashion and Textile Design at The Swedish School of Textiles.
