Out of Fashion: Maastricht Edition 14 May – 26 June 2011
From 14 May to 26 June 2011, NAiM/Bureau Europa is presenting Out of Fashion: Maastricht Edition. The project comprises an exhibition, a film programme and a series of events about the interaction between fashion and film. We can see how fashion houses, avant-garde designers and young, as yet unknown fashion designers utilize film, video and on-line media to give their designs form and to support their distribution and sales.
Designers agnès b. and Maison Martin Margiela have compiled a film programme of their own work especially for Out of Fashion and are showing an exclusive installation. In addition, work can be seen from designers including BLESS, Todd Cole, Prada, Freudenthal/Verhagen and Anna-Nicole Ziesche.
Out of Fashion: Maastricht Edition is the result of a collaboration between the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Premsela: the Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion, Glamcult Studio and NAiM/Bureau Europa. The project is a sequel to Out of Fashion, compiled by Inge de Leeuw for the 40th edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Exhibition design is by Glamcult Studio.
The opening of Out of Fashion: Maastricht Edition will take place on Saturday 14 May at 5 p.m.
