Designs for a Cooler Planet: Fashion Lab

The fashion system causes and carries a number of complex issues, beyond sustainability matters. Yet, the market-driven discussion overshadows alternative narratives. Different narratives, as ideas, actions and perspectives, would contribute to change the way these issues are created and addressed. Fashion Lab intends to expand the voice of the alternatives by inviting diverse actors–anyone who make, sell, buy, wear, and throw away clothes–to come up with new narratives of becoming and living with fashion.

Join us two-day event in which you are invited to reflect on ​experiences and relationships with fashion, and to collaboratively speculate alternative narratives for individuals and communities.
