This is Kate Orr wearing the grey dress, or as she calls it “the brown dress”.

My lovely spotty brown dress caught my eye in Primark and became a staple item for castings back in the day. I seem to remember a few of us (models) had that dress at castings. Nobody minded, we all wore it differently. I kept my dress for about 10 years and wore it a lot. It was still good to go when I sent it to the charity shop. I have a few key items in my wardrobe that I have had for over 10 years, and I still wear today.”

This grey dress was bought from a charity shop and shows a ‘made in Spain’ Primark label. But #whereismyfabricfrom and #whomademyclothes? Any clues?

No new clothes were purchased in the production of this photoshoot.

The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again and again. Refashioned by each of it’s different wearers. 100% cotton, but where was the cotton grown? How was it harvested? #Traceability I have been photographing the Grey Dress for ten years and now I want to know more about it’s origin. I am going to become detective and see how far back along the chain I can go in finding out #whomademyclothes?
