Description of Activity

Starting from a talk focusing on the theory of fashion practice in the
expanded field to practical experimentation, this talk/workshop promotes
the exploration of notions of memory and fashion. A practical laboratory of
interdisciplinary nature that engages with the development of processes of
experimental composition of garments. Introduction to innovative materials
to the fashion discipline, with the use of materials such as latex and
plaster in the production of experimental clothing. Through the use of the
age-old tradition of plaster moulds and the use of natural latex reproducing
‘found items’ from their original form into a memory - as a disruptive voice
regarding productivity and functionality in design methods.
