Transparent fashion

Standing like the beheaded warriors of light, silent and mysterious. This captivating exhibition took place at Estonian capital Tallinn, at the Old Town in a medieval Katariina church. Unfortunately the exhibition spun over just a week, closing yesterday, but i managed to get a glimpse of it to share here.

This fashion exhibition went back to the roots, showing „transparently”  how the pieces of clothing were made, while using the recycling approach to the production, as opposed to the mass produced anonymous and harmful for the environment fast fashion. The list of designers and artists consisted of a selection of names from the local Fashion Council, including my very first fashion drawing tutor Liivika Põvat-Strauss.

The illuminated display stands create a very atmospheric feeling, induced by the darkness of the medieval church. To illustrate the transparent creation process, every designer has written down a journey of their used materials, along with a sketch.
The torsos will be later „recycled” into floor lamps – I´d fancy having one of those in my flat!
