The 2014 DATS conference was on the theme of Cloth: Past, Present and Future. It took place on 25 and 26 September 2014 in two venues in London: at Clothworkers’ Hall in the City and at the V&A’s new Clothworkers’ Centre in Olympia.

The second day included introductions to the textile and fashion archives in the Archive of Art & Design, the V&A’s Theatre and Performance Collection and the new Clothworkers’ Centre itself.
