The ‘Fashion Colloquium: Searching for the New Luxury’ will explore new definitions of ‘luxury’ against the backdrop of urgent environmental and social issues. Fashion is in dire need of more value-based critical thinking as well as design-driven research to thoroughly explore, disrupt, redefine and transform the system. During this two-day conference we will collectively investigate how to move towards a fashion reality that addresses ethics, inclusivity and responsible consumerism in a more engaged way. Design, imagination and aesthetics are essential to express these values and to envision a more ethical engagement with the material objects that surround our bodies. The ‘Fashion Colloquium: Searching for the New Luxury’ will explore how we can transition to a more resilient future of fashion together.  

Fashion Colloquium 2018
More than 30 international academics and creative practitioners will present their research on themes such as new materials, design for closed loops, aesthetic sustainability and emotional connectivity, redefining value systems, new business models and forms of organization, and the importance of agency in moving towards a more resilient future. We will collectively engage in in-depth discussions on how to develop innovative approaches that help to create systemic change. The Fashion Colloquium will host:

  • lectures and panel discussions by keynote speakers;
  • paper presentations by academics and practice-based researchers and designers;
  • creative contributions such as performances, participatory panel discussions and other creative interventions.
