Friday 25-10: FASHION UNFOLDED
Re-thinking the Fashion System
Jose Teunissen, Professorship Fashion Theory and Research at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Arnhem
Since the start of this millennium fashion has come within everyone’s reach via the internet, social media and hundreds of ‘fashion weeks’. Operating in this globalised society, today’s designers and brands know that they can make use of their roots and history only by translating them into a globally identifiable idiom. Roots, crafts and origins become the launch point of a journey or a new international language that has to appeal to 21st century society and citizens. Therefore they also have to address issues such as social awareness and over consumption. Fashion is no longer just about aesthetics or an artistic concept; it has to show us what clothes tell us about the world and times in which we live, and in particular how technology, sustainability and innovation can help us shape a better society. In short the question is how the fashion system has to be adapted to suit a 21st century society.
Jose Teunissen holds a Professorship of Fashion Theory and Research at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts, Arnhem, The Netherlands and works as an independent Fashion curator.
