DISPOSABLE CLOTHES for Recessionistas
DISPOSABLE CLOTHES: How about disposable paper frocks during the credit crunch? That’s the subject of an upcoming exhibition at Antwerp’s Musée de la Mode de la Province museum. The show — dubbed Paper Fashion and conceived in collaboration with Atopos Cultural Organization, an Athens-based design and fashion organization — studies the role of paper and similar materials in contemporary fashion, spanning designs by the likes of Hussein Chalayan, Issey Miyake and John Galliano. Running Mar. 6 to Aug. 16, the exhibition will then travel to London’s Design Museum.
