Fashion Week: A New Era

Fashion for Good Museum
Rokin 102, Amsterdam, Netherlands

The expo: ‘Fashion Week: A New Era’ celebrates fashion through the years and explores how this phenomenon developed over time. How does the event influence the fashion industry? And what does the future hold for fashion week?

Every year during Fashion Week the latest fashion is shown on catwalks in Paris, Milan and New York and other metropoles across the globe. This iconic event has a major impact on the fashion industry and on our own wardrobes. In ‘Fashion Week: A New Era’, the Fashion for Good Museum unpacks the Fashion Week, delving into its past, present and future. View historic looks from the runways of Balenciaga, Versace, Moschino and many more; discover the innovative work of Dutch fashion designer Ronald van der Kemp and digital fashion house The Fabricant.

75 vintage vendors featuring all categories of vintage! Vintage clothing, furniture, home decor, vintage kitchen, midcentury modern, art and so much more. It’s all the vintage you can handle only 4 times a year in Evanston.

What does “circularity” mean? What are the benefits of a circular economy? All of this and more will be answered during the movie night organised at the Fashion for Good Museum.

The new documentary ‘Going Circular’ unlocks the secrets to an innovative concept called circularity — an economic system that eliminates waste and saves the planet’s resources. The film tells the story of four visionaries from around the world – 102-year-old inventor Dr. James Lovelock, biomimicry biologist Janine Benyus, designer Arthur Huang, and financier John Fullerton – whose extraordinary experiences changed the way they think about humanity’s future. Each of their stories leads them to a fundamental reassessment of what our food, our cities, our financial system, even our fashion industry could look like if we create, produce, and distribute within Earth’s natural boundaries.
Afterwards, we will talk to Circle Economy, the initiator of this documentary, the executive producer Ellen Windemuth (from Off the Fence – known for My octopus teacher) and a Fashion for Good expert in the field of innovation and circular fashion.

Join us for a day of total ethics fashion! We’ll be hosting a clothing swap, offering clothing recycling, eating delicious vegan food, hosting a panel discussion on how to create a total ethics fashion system, sharing clothing repair tips, and screening our short film, Willow and Claude.

Event schedule:

11:30AM
Drop offs for our clothing swap open, and you can bring up to five quality items to swap. Stick around to enjoy the music and food, to pick up a total ethics fashion booklet, recycle unswappable clothes, or learn about clothing repair from Julia English.

2:00PM
Our swap event begins! Everyone will receive tokens in exchange for the clothes they bring along, so everyone will come away with something new to love and care for.

4:00PM
Our swap finishes, and we’ll begin preparing for our panel discussion.

4:30PM
A panel discussion between Fiona Patten MP of the Reason Party, Jenna Flood aka The Ironic Minimalist, and Tessa Carroll of A_C, moderated by onnsumer behaviour PhD candidate and lecturer Rachel Lamarche. We’ll be exploring how we can help to create a total ethics fashion system – in our own wardrobes, our communities, and on a political level.

5:30PM
Our panel discussion finishes, and we’ll set up for our film screening – but first, a trailer for SLAY! Why not get a sweet treat before it begins?

6:00PM
A screening of our multi-award winning short film, Willow & Claude, which explores what it means to craft a total ethics fashion knitwear supply chain.

7:00PM finish
