New photography exhibition captures youth fashion

Manchester Central Library
9 Oct 2017 - 4 Nov 2017



The Portrait Youth project explores the individual and civic identities of Manchester's young people through clothes, styling and photography.

The free exhibition is on display at Central Library as a special contribution to Design Manchester festival.

2017 is a year of change. The Metro Mayor election last May triggered significant devolution of powers to the city region. Uncertainties around international trade and free movement continue to present challenges for the creative industries.

Manchester’s fifth design festival, from 11–22 October, celebrates change and takes the challenges head on, working with our partners to showcase talent, ask questions and create opportunities for design solutions, for careers and for enterprise.

The festival programme offers more than 50 events, including exhibitions, workshops, films, debates, parties and other events at iconic venues around the city region.
