(2013 Q&A with Nina Willems --> read here)
For the 2013 edition of FASHIONCLASH festival Nina created the concept for the special VERWEVEN Project. In the years to come, FASHIONCLASH will continue to collaborate with Nina Willems to realize the project “VERWEVEN”. In this project, we will tell the stories of ordinary people behind the clothes they wear. We ask them to show us their wardrobe and interview them about their lives and the importance of fashion in it. This will result in a series of short films about the influence of fashion on their daily lives.
We would like to have a new outfit designed for each person that we interviewed. Therefore we are looking for 5 designers who see this as a challenge! Your challange is to create a new outfit for this person, inspired on the stories he/she tells in the film. To combine your own style as a designers with their style and stories. And to create a brand new piece that tells new story. There are no rules for your design, apart from the fact that it must be wearable on the catwalk. We are open for experimental ideas and designs.
|VERWEVEN 2013 at FASHIONCLASH Festival 2013|
Your outfit will be shown on the catwalk during the FASHIONCLASH festival 2014 (13 - 15 June). It will be shown by the person you designed it for. In addition to the show, the outfit will be exhibited in the FASHIONCLASH exhibtion at the main venue.
On the website of VERWEVEN (currently in development) you will have your own page with information about you as a designer, professional photo’s of your design and photo’s of the FASHIONCLASH Festival.
Furthermore the purpose of VERWEVEN project is to travel to other festivals and exhibitions and in that context your work may be part of many events to come.
If you are interested in participating, send your resume+portfolio before the 10th of MARCH to firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to welcome you as a designer for VERWEVEN 2014!
