The Replica Project is a studio led research practice, interrogating connections between fashion and costume.

The practice explores authenticity and replication through iterations of the archival replica as the design methodology.

Interventions, branding and fabrications subvert the archival form and comment upon mechanisms and the role of couture and luxury within contemporary fashion.

Hi-lo archetypes, fabrications and construction techniques validate the photographic image as more compelling than the physical garment itself.
