Sheffield and London
Sophie-Nicole Dodds practice stems from her bespoke tailoring and fashion days, looking at the craft and systems within them. Drawing, sewing and print lead her work through expanded fashion practices. She works from textile archives, museum collections and objects within her own studio 'archive', by focusing on wear, care and everyday domestic moments. In the studio she washes and dyes remnants of cloth and thrown away clothes to give them a new story, using them to understand loss as well as memory. She aims to communicate the importance of slow, repetitive life movements within the domestic space of making and wearing by using technical tailoring and drawing skills.
