BECAUSE MOTHER NATURE IS ANGRY!

Fashion: We can enjoy less
The average Dutch person today owns no fewe then sevety pieces of clothing, and buys thirty more each year. Do we think our craving for new fashion parchases in order to stand out in a crowd may be going too far? In order to combat over-consumption, Marijke Timmerman has designed a collection that will reinforce the bond between garment and the person wearing it.
1 Enough will become more uniquely yours every day through your personal use. A sweater that lives because it will start matting noticeably in certain places. A pair of tights that will ladder in curious ways when you wear them. A dress that will have suddenly changed colours when you take it out of the washing machin. The garment’s uniqueness does not stem from purchasing it, but from it’s owner’s personal use.

Vilte from Denthe

“Surfaces” is an eco piece of textile art hand felted from unique raw organic Drenthe Heath wool (that is the oldest sheep breed in Western Europe!), hand dyed with plants Wensleydale sheep wool, raw silk, handspun silk yarns, silk chiffon, merino wool and cotton gauze. It has beautiful natural tones – from antique, off white, ivory, sand, beige to brown, a little bit of moss green and tea rose too.

Light, unique, rich in texture – an ode to the surfaces. Still wild, but soft and elegant at the same time. A modern eco-friendly touch to your home, very contemporary accent on your wall.

Fair Fashion Made in Arnhem
Modeshow, Textiel & Mode

Woensdag 27 Oktober staat bij Material Sense geheel in het teken van materialen en de betekenis voor duurzame mode.

Awearness Fair Fashion, platform voor presentatie en promotie van duurzame mode, presenteert op uitnodiging van Material Sense een bijzondere fashion show: Fair Fashion Made in Arnhem. Modestad Arnhem is de bakermat van grote modenamen. De wijk Modekwartier Arnhem herbergt een aantal bijzondere ontwerpers die niet alleen opvallen door de klasse van hun werk, maar ook door het sociale en duurzame karakter van hun bedrijfsvoering. In de show presenteren de ontwerpers hoe zij met de uitdagingen van materiaalkeuze, schoonheid en duurzaamheid omgaan.

De show is te zien op deze speciale modedag, maar kun je als ontwerper ook zelf aan de slag. De workshop Materials for fair fashion daagt ontwerpers uit om in één dag een fashionpiece te creëren, met speciaal hiervoor geselecteerde materialen en door gebruikmaking van moulagetechniek.

In aanvullende presentaties wordt achtergrondinformatie gegeven over materiaalgebruik en de ontwerpen. Daarnaast is er ruimte voor vragen en discussie.

15.00 en 16.00: Fashion shows
16:30-17:30: Presentatie en Q & A met publiek
