Material (im)Perfections

Fredrik Wickberg beckmans mode, fashion, fashion show, material show, fashion and fashion show

The second-year students in the fashion program have, with artistic freedom, laboured with their own materials and created experimental fashion collections. The focus has been on method and process, where the experimentation itself has led them to how the collection has taken product design. The students have in different ways related to three Japanese aesthetic concepts: wabi - imperfect beauty; ma - the potential of the space between; and kintsugi - the philosophy that the damage and repair gives added value to an object's history. It is about seeing materiality with new eyes and appreciating unexpected encounters, change and the damaged, in order to extract sensibility from it.

The show is the culmination of a course in artistic design, where students have had to explore the interplay between fashion, the body and the surrounding space.
