Nobody's Fashion Week Virtual Town Hall
Wednesday, July 8, 5-7pm EDT
Via Zoom - Link sent upon Registration
Join us for a Virtual Town Hall to kick off Nobody’s Fashion Week! 21 alternative fashion artists, designers, educators and organizers will introduce their work. Their practices span a range of themes - such as personal identity, cultural history, sustainability, craft and technology - but all share roots in critically engaging with fashion. Presentations will be followed by an opportunity to mingle, planting seeds for future connections, conversations and collaborations between like-minded fashion enthusiasts.
Nobody’s Fashion Week offers a nurturing space for emerging artists and the public using wearables and the body as a medium. In September 2020, Nobody’s Fashion Week will host a month of remote programming that is free and open to the public, including practical workshops, panel discussions and artist talks. Nobody’s Fashion Week is a reimagining of the fashion industry from the bottom up. Our aim is to democratize fashion by encouraging multidisciplinary collaboration, skill-sharing culture, and self-expression for everyone.
Nobody’s Fashion Week is co-curated by Lexy Ho-Tai, Jaime Iglehart, Dew Igworia and Johanna Schwab.
Nobody’s Fashion Week is hosted by Flux Factory, with support from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Arts & Culture, the Austrian Culture Forum New York and a generous donation from Joe Castillo.
