Event description

Description

Fashion is ephemeral, expressive, empowering. Fashion reflects for better and for worst who we are as an individual and as a society. So what does fast fashion say about ourselves?

What will fashion practices look like in 2030? Fast Forward: Fashion 2030, a studio-led design pop-up developed by RMIT Fashion and Textile lecturers Jo Cramer and Kate Sala (pictured), seeks to imagine new circular fashion practices.

Meet future designers

Fast Forward is presented by RMIT Gallery / Goethe-Institut as part of the provocative new exhibition Fast Fashion: The dark side of fashion (21 July – 9 September).

Using the Fast Fashion exhibition as a provocation, the future designers of Fast Forward reconsiders our relationship with materials and to clothing. How might a sustainable and ethical fashion system emerge that is globally networked, but based on authentic localised relationships of materiality and fabrication?

The third year RMIT School of Fashion and Textiles students will showcase the interim results of their collaboration with Germany’s future-thinking sustainable designer and entrepreneur Ina Budde. As founder of Design for Circularity, Ina realises recyclable product and system innovations for fashion labels with products designed for a ''cradle to cradle'' inspired circular economy.

Students worked with Ina to explore how they can approach changing the practices and systems of production and consumption to a more sustainable model. Through their various approaches, they reveal the potential for a new fashion system to emerge.

Fast Fashion: The dark side of fashion (21 July – 9 September) is presented by RMIT Gallery in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut and RMIT School of Fashion and Textiles, Fast Fashion is curated by Dr. Claudia Banz at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (MKG) in Hamburg and supported by Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt and Karin Stilke Stiftung.
