Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam
Concept: MINDFASHION.today

Tickets >>

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

The Fashion Dialogue challenged, crossed, connected and rewrote borders, systems, disciplines, definitions and beliefs, revealing a Design DNA that is made out of more than threads of fabrics and technology. The conversation aimed to address that fashion exists beyond static garments, design, catwalks, labels, stores and closets. 

IN DIALOGUE WITH:

Each speaker looked at fashion in relation to sustainability - in the broadest sense of the word - from their own, unique point of view, expertise and ‘design’ philosophy.
