We Need to Talk about Fashion
Fashion is fun, beauty, nostalgia, but it is also status, overconsumption and exploitation. In every age, fashion raises new questions and elicits different feelings. In We Need to Talk about Fashion, we address issues that are urgent today, based on a hundred recently acquired collection items. Not only iconic objects by resounding names such as Madeleine Vionnet, Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Comme des Garçons, but also anonymous gems form the ideal conversation piece. Visit the expo and share your opinion on these much-discussed themes!
The exhibition features an exclusive publication, in both a Dutch and an English version. This is not a classic catalogue but a richly illustrated magazine alternating articles by international researchers and journalists with interviews by designers, musicians and fashion actors. The result is a richly varied image of the wonderful world of activewear.
