Designers in Residence: Duran Lantink
For Ways Of Caring, Fashion Open Studio presents the work of four designers in residence, who will create individual site specific projects to celebrate and integrate within the Arnhem community.
Each designer will share their creativity, bring a piece of their own studio, and elements from their experiences as fashion practitioners: Duran Lantink from the Netherlands, Tom Van der Borght from Belgium, Toton Januar from Indonesia, and Sindiso Khumalo from South Africa, will demonstrate how design and creativity can be a source of joy and beauty and offer social and environmental solutions at the same time.

Duran Lantink proposes The Age of Consent, a workshop bringing together many generations - from the young to the ‘Original Gangsters.’ The intervention takes place in a care home for old people, inviting students to work with the local residents to reconstruct second-hand garments together. Domestic sewing machines and other hand sewing and making equipment will be provided and anybody who wants to show off the results can have their photograph taken at a pop-up photography studio. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy making outfits together and sharing knowledge which can be often lost in generational divides. The day will culminate in a salsa dancing daytime party where the participants will be invited to dress up and dance, eat, drink and celebrate creativity - and life - together.
