INCLUSIVE FASHION PRACTICES

HOW CAN FASHION SPARK INSPIRATION FOR SYSTEMS OF PRODUCTION AND
CONSUMPTION THAT ARE INCLUSIVE, PARTICIPATORY,
ABUNDANT, PLURAL, AND DEDICATED TO MUTUAL GROWTH AND LEARNING ?

The event ‘Inclusive Fashion Practices’ hosted by the Fashion track of
the Integrated Design program in the School of Design Strategies of
Parsons will offer a vivid context to a new generation of artist and
designers proposing new models of practice for fashion and our everyday
lives moving beyond established notions of fashion that promote
exclusivity and scarcity, appropriated by capitalism and staged by the
spectacle. It will embrace the inclusive, dynamic and all evasive
reality of fashion. Fashion is an expression of our vitality, a
celebration of our creativity, our vulnerability and our dedication to
share ourselves and be touched by others.

Inclusive Fashion Practices will bring together an exceptional group of
practitioners that share an integrated and holistic approach to
designing, living and making, and whose premises are joy, beauty,
collaboration, play, sharing and open source. The practitioners invited
come from different fields of practice, economy, food, community
practices, fashion, craft and art.

The event aims to spark discussion and insight about our current models
of consumption, production and creation, imagining new models for being
in this world, supporting values like love, abundance, respect, sharing
and beauty.

Join us on November 13th, from 11-6, in the Theresa Lang Community and
Student Center, Arnold Hall, 55 W 13th street, 2nd floor, for an amazing
brunch, inspiring talks, immersive workshops and an open exchange of
ideas and iterations.
