WOW!  What a day the team at Getaway Girls had at the Changing Labels Decades Fashion Show at Leeds City Museum on 28th September.

The results of all their hard work interviewing women of all ages can now be seen on the film, put together by amazing film maker Rita Conry.

You can also see all the fun we had at the fashion show as we’ve added it onto the end of the film for those of you unlucky enough to have missed the fab event!

Changing Labels Project

The new Changing Labels blog is now live!!  Come and have a look!!

Changing Labels is a year-long project researching teenage fashion from the 1940’s to the present day.  It is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by Getaway Girls in partnership with Leeds City Museum.  The aim is for young women, aged 13 – 25 to produce a short film, oral histories and a fashion show showcasing their learning during their time on the project.  They will also be putting together an outfit that will be displayed in Leeds City Museum, which represents teenage fashion in 2013.  The project will look at similarities and differences in teenage fashion and how styles have evolved through youth culture.  Along the way young women will be participating in interesting activities, including researching other influences such as music, hair and make-up, learning how to blog, film making, interviewing older people about their fashion memories and designing a logo.  They will also have the opportunity to learn lots of new skills such as budgeting and event organisation and will visit other places that can help them in their work.
