Closing weekend: State of Fashion Talks with a.o. Elisa van Joolen en Transfashional

Enter into a dialogue with designers and scientists during the State of Fashion Closing weekend!

Join us on Saturday July 21 between 14:00 and 17:00 for one of the talks taking place in the very center of the expo. Enter into a dialogue with designers and scientists, who can tell you exactly how they are accomplishing sustainable changes within the contemporary fashion system.

What’s on the program?

- 14:00 – 15:30: An art debate by Transfashional next to the Apparatus catwalk. The question how fashion, as an industry and as a system, is redefined and renewed, is key.

- 16:00 – 16:30: Round table session with Elisa van Joolen (designer of the installation PORTAL). Van Joolen presents the results of her installation ‘PORTAL’ and talks about this with the audience
