Morag Seaton is a Scottish fashion designer and maker working in London. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art where she received awards for sustainability, the dissertation prize and the John Byrne Award for ‘Garment Stories’. Morag has since worked across fashion production, arts and culture, and garment technology, most recently for the UKRI Textiles Circularity Centre at the Royal College of Art. She co-runs Worn, an organisation that engages people with the emotional and environmental significance of their clothes.
The fundamental components of Morag’s creative practice include abstract tailoring, pockets, fashion systems and speculative design. Each component is carefully researched and stitched together with a distinct visual language. Her individual and collaborative projects are led by conversations, workshops and other public engagement research she facilitates with people about their clothing experiences, understandings and fictional ideas. Usually starting with an everyday or speculative question, Morag’s work seeks to unpack the socio-cultural, environmental and personal significance of the objects we wear.
