Other Kinds Of Fashion

Through design creativity we can solve many problems in the fashion industry. Based on different kinds of fashion design approaches, we can take account the extended use phase, different body size, redesigning with old clothes, using natural dyes and creating sustainable beauty. Through these different design strategies, we can transform fashion culture towards one which is in better balance with the environment.

Nubia:No More

This research project takes place in Egyptian Nubia. Today, the Nubian region is mainly under the water of a human-made lake caused by the construction of High Dam in Aswan, Egypt. The exhibition's main goal is to create awareness on the sustainability of Nubian traditional architecture, which makes use of natural resources, to better understand social and cultural aspects of Nubian construction practices, and to disclose the impacts caused by the acts of humankind.
