The designers in this exhibition see fashion as their mission. They belong to a generation of designers who explore the limits of their discipline, questioning both the system and the fashion industry. Their works move between the transdisciplinary domains of fashion, social design and visual art and introduce the everyday, contemporary topics, and new narratives to fashion.
The exhibition will be opened by Branko Popovic, co owner of FASHIONCLASH and Floor van Spaendonck, director Bureau Europa, platform for architecture and design.
