Repair and Alteration centres
For my MA project I will look further into the successes and failures of local clothing repair and alteration shops. Primary research will help me gain an insight into these businesses, as they are often associated with dry cleaners or tailors and common on many high streets.
They are a common feature within many communities and I am intruiged to find out more about these places that play such a vital role in restoring the clothing we wear out.
How successful are such places? How creative are the alterations they perform? What prices do they charge for alterations? Have they seen a change in business since the recession?
