The Fashion Dialogue: 

Design for Longevity

1 November 2018 | 7:30 - 9:00 PM
Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam

Tickets >>

Join Het Nieuwe Instituut and Yophi Ignacia, Sonja Antosalo, Janne Baetsen, Ben Wubs, Susanne Vegter, Marina Toeters and Saskia van Stein during this unique conversation about the current and future role that fashion plays in individuals' lives, our society and today's economy.

The Fashion Dialogue will challenge, cross, connect and rewrite borders, systems, disciplines, definitions and beliefs, revealing a Design DNA that is made out of more than threads of fabrics and technology. The conversation aims to address that fashion exists beyond static garments, design, catwalks, labels, stores and closets. 

Take part and discuss together with us the values behind the clothes we design, produce, wear and dispose of.

Location & Partner:

Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam organises The Fashion Dialogue: Design for Longevity. Through its activities Het Nieuwe Instituut aims to increase the appreciation of the cultural and social significance of architecture, design and digital culture and to strengthen the interaction between these disciplines. In a period characterised by radical change, Het Nieuwe Instituut wants to moderate, stimulate and facilitate debate about architecture, design and digital culture through research and a public programme. The broadening and deepening of the public’s appreciation is a fundamental starting point.
