State of Fashion 2018 | Searching for the new luxury

Iris van Herpen
From Friday 1 June until Sunday 22 July,  State of Fashion displays the search for the new luxury.

Curated by José Teunissen, the Dean of London College of Fashion/UAL, and Professor of Fashion Theory, State of Fashion explores how we can apply fashion’s imaginative, seductive and innovative power to create a more futureproof fashion cycle.

The exhibition shows pioneering designers and thinkers who are proposing innovative and sustainable ideas and designs that are contributing to a better world.
The main question is how can we redifine the meaning of luxury in the context of the world of today, facing sociatel and environmental changes.

The exhibition features several components offering diverse approaches to the subject. The journey starts with innovative future proposals with projects from Yuima Nakazato, Rafael Kouto and Iris van Herpen. Further in the exhibition one can discover new business models such as Matti Liimatainen (Self-Assembly) and work by pioneers like Bruno Pieters (Honest By). The exhibition also shows how cross-disciplinary collaboration and research between science and fashion education can lead to new opportunities through material experiments. One of the strongest features is the contribution by Vivienne Westwood who in her later career still stands in the frontier to fight for a better world.
Each Friday, during the exhibition period, The Whataboutery debates are organized providing a platform for dialogue about various topics related to the theme of State of Fashion.
