10.00 – 14.30
Workshop 1: JOIN Collective Clothes

JOIN Collective Clothes is a project by Anouk Beckers in which fashion is explored as a collective practice, focusing on designing and making clothes together. The essential tool of the project is an open source modular system that consists of four different shapes: top (J), sleeve, (O), trouser leg (I), or part of a skirt (N). Through a series of workshops, everyone is invited to design and make a single piece of a garment.

Anouk Beckers will host a JOIN Collective Clothes workshop in Cube Design Museum, Kerkrade during the Fashion Makes Sense Award KICK OFF. The pieces made by all participants of the workshop, together create a whole outfit. The results of this workshop will be exhibited in the museum from Saturday 28th of September 2019 – 20th of January 2020.

Fashion Talks, moderated by Jeroen Junte

To get more in depth within the theme of sustainability, we invited a few key note speakers to talk about their point of view on the current fashion industry.

Karin Vlug/ UNSEAM

Karin Vlug is a a fashion designer and researcher dreaming of a new fashion production system that does not require sewing. Enabling local, on-demand and made-to-measure production. Her inspiration comes from industries outside of the fashion industry, collaborating with partners from other industries and knowledge institutes form the core of her practice, without them it would not be possible. Her aim is to contribute to a more sustainable fashion industry trough material research and by redesigning the production and construction process of a garment.

Karin is co-founder of UNSEAM an initiative founded by Bas Froon and Karin Vlug that develops new technologies enabling local, digital and on-demand manufacturing of textile products. By combining new and existing digital techniques, UNSEAM aims to enable designers and brands to produce their clothes, shoes and furniture made to measure and on-demand: closer to the end-user.

Amber Jae Slooten/ The Fabricant
The Fabricant is a digital fashion house operating at the intersection of fashion and technology. The fashion future we imagine is collaborative, creative and co-operative. The digital-only fashion arena is a place of freedom, fantasy and self-expression. Everyone should have the opportunity to realize their digital identity, or identities, in a way that they choose, expressing who they are, wish to be perceived, or want to become. Your virtual self can be an extension of your actual physical self - or something completely different. It’s your choice. The boundaries of the physical fashion world do not apply, or any of its rules about how to behave as an industry. We’re at year zero on the digital-only fashion timeline. We have the opportunity to avoid the mistakes of the past and participate in a fashion future that’s creative and sustainable: expressing ourselves while wasting nothing but data, exploiting nothing but the power of our imagination. The Fabricant knows that what we do will only be one part of the story. It’s time to co-create the fashion world we’ve always dreamed of. Let’s take this first step together.

Linda Valkeman/ 'Obroni wa wu' (dead white man's clothing)
Linda Valkeman is a research-based designer who straddles the interface of design and anthropology. Defining herself as a 'Material Teller' she aims to explore how the meaning of objects, styles and aesthetic forms change over time and space. Consumption patterns, material migration and neo colonialism are subjects that influence or appear in my work.

‘Obroni wa wu’ also known as ‘Death White Men’s Clothing’ explores the life of second hand clothing material in the context of Ghana and the Netherlands. What kind of impact does the ‘donated’ clothing have on the people who receive it?

Linda is working on a archive sharing sender receiver stories of second hand clothing.

Each look in her collection is representing a ‘clothing passport’, which gives insight on the movement and identity of the items. As a curator of these clothing identities she wants to trigger thoughts and start a dialogue on clothing donation & consumption.
