FASHION AND GEOGRAPHY: CAN THERE BE FASHION OUT OF THE CITY?
- Tilhører tema:
- Fransk mote på film
As part of the film series "Fransk mote på film" (French fashion in films) Verdensteatret will also host conversations connected to the film screenings.
In BRODEUSES (pictured), the two embroiderers work in the French countryside, far away from the Paris catwalks where their designs are shown. This distance is the point of departure for a conversation on fashion and geography. This conversation will challenge the widely accepted definition of fashion as an urban phenomenon. The discourse on fashion has long been centered around fashion capitals, especially Paris, London, New York, and Milan. In recent years, more cities, previously considered peripheral to the fashion system, have come to the fore, such as Tokyo, Seoul, and Copenhagen.
But does contemporary fashion still need an urban environment to flourish? This conversation will debate the possibilities and hindrances of non-urban fashion, and review existing experimentations.
Participants in the conversation will be announced shortly.
The conversation will be held in English.
Free admission, but all audiences must register and collect a free ticket here!
This event is supported by Institut Francais and Culture[s] de Mode.
