What is fashion ?
When most people hear the word “fashion,” something very specific comes to mind: runways, models, expensive clothes, superficial attitudes, and consumerism. No wonder so many people sneer at the industry.
In reality, fashion is a much broader concept than that, encapsulating who we are on an everyday level, and how we project that through our clothes. What we wear is who we are—and it’s quite personal. This way of looking at fashion might not be the first thing that comes to mind when the word arises, but fashion after Fashion, a new exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design, is hoping to change that.
“We wanted to acknowledge that a lot of people—journalists and scholars, and even people in design—have been talking about the fact that something different is happening in fashion,” explained Hazel Clark, who co-curated the show with Ilari Laamanen. “By using the capital ‘F,’ we wanted to acknowledge the fashion system, seasons, and designers, and that that exists. But we also wanted to acknowledge with the lower case ‘f’ that there’s also a lot more going on.”
The exhibit features commissioned work from six designers and one alternative fashion magazine, all interpreting different ways that fashion and clothing speaks to us on a personal level. Lucy Jones, Ryohei Kawanishi, Ensæmble, Henrik Vibskov, SSAW Magazine, and Eckhaus Latta explore a variety of themes, from dressing the disabled body to the intimacy of spaces (like the dressing room).
