The Future of Fashion in Now
11 October 2014 - 18 January 2015
Is fashion made to last or do we want a new wardrobe every few months? Is the current beauty standard the yardstick or could it be different? What role will so-called ‘wearable technology’ play in fashion in the future? These are the questions that today’s fashion designers are pondering and the exhibition at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen seeks to answer.
- Explore future’s fashion according to international top designers
- Discover the work and visit workshops, lectures and a symposium.
New generation of fashion designers
The exhibition showcases designs by the newest generation of fashion designers, such as Viktor & Rolf, Christophe Coppens (Belgium), Hussein Chalayan (Cyprus) and Rejina Pyo (Korea). They introduce innovative solutions and designs at the cutting edge of fashion and art. Sustainability, futurist technology and the social value of clothing are their themes.
More than fashion
In addition to unique apparel and projects contributed by over 50 international designers, the exhibition also embraces video sequences and installations. The museum will be organising several activities, such as a symposium, workshops and lectures, as well.
