On October 14th, Modebelofte 2015 kicked off with at a very unique venue, the Philips Stadion in Eindhoven. With this 3rd edition of Modebelofte (meaning ‘Fashion Promise’) under the visionary direction of Ellen Albers, owner of the concept store You Are Here, Modebelofte takes the prominent position as a stage for fashion design within the context of Dutch Design Week Eindhoven.
Curated around a concept of ‘Performing Advancers’ this exhibition shows a range of progressive freshly graduated fashion designers from Dutch and international BA and MA courses (mostly from Benelux and Uk).
The home of PSV football club, the Philips Stadion will temporarily share its stage with emerging fashion visioniars. However maybe an unlikely location at first sight, looking form the point of the curatorial context this is exactly the perfect venue. This theme ’Performing Advancers' refers to the urge of the human beings for urge performance and performance enhancing innovation. The selection features work of 42 talents who found their inspiration in performing bodies, sportswear and speculation of the future. This young future forecasters are challenging the traditional ideas of the way we dress, the gender codes and the limits of what is humanly possible and imaginable.
