THE EVENTS

INTERMISSION

Join us for a screening of the first documentary in our Fashion on Film summer series focused on sustainable fashion.
“Where the Future of Fashion is Headed” follows fashion pioneers as they attempt to make the industry future-proof by experimenting with new fabrics, waste and high-tech design. Vin + Omi’s haute-couture collection for London Fashion Week features fabrics made from plants and plastic bottles. The Amsterdam label Hacked By experiments with the reuse of clothing surpluses, while Flemish designer Jasna Rokegem explores the possibility of clothing made each morning by a 3D printer.
Beyond sustainability, these innovators call for us to look differently at the industry’s demand on designers and the role that clothing plays in our lives. (Bregtje van der Haak, 2018, 50 minutes.)
How to Participate
This program will take place in person at the museum. Space is limited, so please register online to reserve your spot.
