Encounter with Limerick School of Art and Design

Sarah Ryan
Last week FASHIONCLASH visited Limerick a small town in Ireland. FASHIONCLASH was invited to give a presentation to at  LSAD (Limerick school of Art & Design).
We really enjoyed this encounter with school that clearly shows potential.
We discovered interesting work from LSAD students and alumni.
There is loads of attention for textiles and materials. Designer Lorraine Dimond explains that she tries to be a s sustainable as possible.
"I also developed digital print and knit techniques both by hand and with Shima Seiki industrial knit patterns. Sustainable work ethics and sourcing are important within my collection, my main fabrics are pure wools, recycled polyesters and tencel." (Lorraine Dimond)

Sarah Ryan's impressive collection also shows interesting materials and textures inspired by the human body.
Limerick School of Art and Design Building
‘Corpus Fraterna’ is based on the notion of building a newly formed body from the inside out. Using my two brothers, both surgeons, as its beginning, the collection investigates contour and line with particular focus on inter-connectivity and the garments relativity to one another. The fusion of muscle to bone is illustrated using adverse textiles to create a new informed silhouette in achromatic black." (Sarah Ryan).

Ontwerper/Ondernemer Project

Doe je ogen dicht en denk aan Maastricht - Eén van de eerste dingen die je dan ‘ziet’ is winkelend publiek in de sfeervolle straten van onze karakteristieke stad en mensen die een drankje doen op het terras gelegen aan een gezellig plein.

Maastricht Winkelstad, we kunnen ons er alles bij voorstellen. Winkelen en mode hebben alles met elkaar te maken. Maar toch is het concept Maastricht Modestad nog niet zo duidelijk te zien.

Het antwoord: Ontwerper/Ondernemer Project
Het concept Maastricht Modestad is nog niet sterk gevestigd terwijl hier wel mogelijkheden voor zijn. Daar wilt Gemeente Maastricht in samenwerking met FASHIONCLASH wat aan doen.

Gezamenlijke ambitie: mode in Maastricht versterken gericht op een reputatie en een dynamische modesector van Maastricht als modestad. Hoe? De academie in Maastricht is een bronpunt van veel talent. Maar slechts weinigen worden succesvol ondernemer. Hierdoor komt veel talent niet tot volledige wasdom. FASHIONCLASH en de gemeente Maastricht slaan de handen ineen en bieden een gezamenlijk programma aan: Ontwerper/Ondernemer.
Dit zakelijk begeleidingsprogramma leert ontwerpers op persoonlijke wijze de basisvaardigheden van het ondernemen waarmee ze hun eigen modeonderneming kunnen ontwikkelen.
Er is nog een lange weg te gaan maar de ingrediënten en de enthousiasme zijn er.

Deelnemers 'Ontwerper/Ondernemer': Joelle Boers, Mieke Kockelkorn, Gabriel Guevara, Linda Friesen, Danielle Vroemen, Ebby Port, Marscha Kessels, Branko Popovic, Nawie Kuiper, FASHIONCLASH.

Not a ‘performance’ for the jury but a rehearsal in public. A drama society rehearsing a play next to a samba band, a poet reciting his poem near a choir, a dancer rehearsing his steps alongside museum directors engaged in a discussion, a…. For that particular morning, we are asking the cultural field to move their rehearsals to the Vrijthof in Maastricht.

A flying visit, for the jury will not take more than half an hour to stroll through the various rehearsals. The cultural field showing what it is at! And we are also calling on all citizens of Maastricht and the Meuse-Rhine Euregio to come and watch this open-air rehearsal. In other words: do not leave your supporters at home!

FASHIONCLASH at Dutch Week Mauritius
15 - 20 June 2013 in Mauritius

FASHIONCLASH attended Dutch Week in Mauritius last week! FASHIONCLASH has travelled before but never so far away and to such exotic destination as Mauritius.
The three Dutch Tall Ships ‘Tecla’, bark ‘Europa’ and ‘Oosterschelde’ are sailing around the world, wandering the oceans and following the old trade routes of historic times. From 15 – 19 June the ships where berthed near Le Caudan Waterfront in Port Louis in Mauritius. In connection to the historic visit of the Dutch Tall Ships in Mauritius, a Dutch Week was organized.
FASHIONCLASH has been invited to present one Dutch designer, two models and to invite several journalists. We have selected Dutch designer Tessa Wagenvoort to present her collection in the program of the Fashion & Design Institute fashion event that took place on June 17th. Accompanying Tessa Wagenvoort we have invited two Dutch models Lotte Berkelaar and Danila Pietersz.
Beside the fashion show we have initiated a fashion shoot with the photographer Lonneke van der Palen. For this shoot we have used clothing of Tessa Wagenvoort and from students of the FDI Mauritius. The shoot took place in the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort where we where guests the entire week. This is the most wonderful resort with the kindest team.
Beside the fashion event and the shoot we had the honor to welcome the Dutch Tall Ships and to wave goodbye and fruthermore MTPA has composed a full program for us with various activities and visits around some of the islands highlights.
Looking back to last week it was an unforgettable week and encounter with lovely people we have met in Mauritius. We are now brainstorming about possible collaboration with the Fashion & Design Institute. We hope to go back to this small but magical part of the earth.

Review and impressions from the show: http://brankopopovic.blogspot.nl/2013/06/fashion-design-institute-mauritius.html
