This week the exhibition ‘Fashioning the Future; Innovating textile value chains’ started

At Impulse, there will be two “sustainable outfits” on display as well as many videos and samples from the research projects. One example is the project “Textile as Living Skin” on the use of algae, mycelium, and kombucha as alternative materials and their impact on the wearers. The following items will be scattered across campus:

  • The Spot in Orion will focus on the ethical issues of the fashion industry. An enormous manifesto for a sustainable revolution will be displayed here. Consumers will be challenged to think about where they buy their clothes and who makes them with the phrase: "Who made my clothes?"
  • Orion will have various videos of ACT projects on display. Have you been waiting for the day that you could wear a sustainable G-Star dress? Try out this uniquely designed dress at a Orion photo shoot.
  • The bridge between Orion and Forum will display large flags with the principles of the State of Fashion Manifesto, such as #no waste, #reuse, #fairness, #care, #tech, and #essential.
  • A tiny house between Forum and Orion will showcase clothing by designers Viktor and Rolf. They used leftover textiles to design a new collection for Zalando.
