The state of contemporary fashion consumption vs regional costumes
we need to preserve knowledge about traditional national costumes to prevent this knowledge from disappearing
In 'Community Dressing', experts, craftsmen and wearers try to answer the following question: How has the current fashion system changed and / or stayed the same in relation to costume dressing?
underlying purpose of the documentary series is to investigate questions that
have recently been at stake about fashion. What is fashion? What is the meaning
of our clothing? What effect has the development of the fashion system after
the industrial revolution (democratization / globalization) had? The exciting
thing is that this mainly updates the phenomenon of the regional costumes as a
Dutch fashion heritage and may give it a new contemporary meaning.
