MaterialDistrict Expo: Fancy Fashion

MaterialDistrict is partner of Fashion? Future design for the present, an exhibition curated and organised by Marina Toeters. MaterialDistrict will be present with the expo Fancy Fashion at Melkontvangst (De Campina, Eindhoven) during Dutch Design Week, the world-famous design event taking place on 20 – 28 October 2018.

Fashion? Future design for the present
Fashion pretends to be a field of innovation and the new, but the materials and production methods have hardly developed since the Industrial Revolution. Fashion and clothing could be so much more; it is the piece of technology we keep closest to our skin, and with which we have the most intimate relationship.

The exhibition explores and opens a vista of possibilities through a range of innovative projects from different designers and researchers from the Netherlands and abroad, some very experimental, some ready for sale and home use.

From new sustainable ways of thinking and designing, innovative production solutions and integrated technology that can improve the way garments behave, feel and treat your body. Far from being a static place to display existing projects, there will also be a live and active workspace in which projects, machinery and inspiring ideas will materialize in real life.

MaterialDistrict Expo “Fancy Fashion
As part of the event, MaterialDistrict presents a curated exhibition of carefully selected, innovative materials from 50 material brands. Textile made from pineapple leaves, rope made from human hair, fabric made from wood… During the event, visitors can experience how fancy fashion can be!
