Critical Approaches to Fashion
The public discussion about fashion often emphasises aesthetics, neglecting an important aspect of the entire field: fashion as a form of critical thinking and design.
Critical Approaches to Fashion showcases work from NÄYTÖS23 by students Anni Salonen and Kuutti Lemmetyinen who graduated in Spring 2023. Physical garments, images and other visual materials illustrate new designers’ efforts to promote fashion through ecological, social, and cultural sustainability. Their work highlights how fashion can challenge the norms and explore new bold ideas.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Fashion BA major and MA program FaCT.
The working group includes the following:
- Elina Peltonen;
- Annamari Vänskä;
- Julia Valle;
- Ilona Hyötyläinen.
