VIRTUAL FASHION SHOW
NOBODY'S FASHION WEEK
TUESDAY, SEP 01 2020 - THURSDAY, OCT 15 2020
Fashion is all around us. Fashion is body politics, representation, sustainability, systems. Fashion is a medium that everybody participates in. Nobody’s Fashion Week is a reimagining of the fashion industry during Covid-19 which encourages multidisciplinary collaboration, skill-sharing culture, and self-expression for everyone.
Nobody’s Fashion Week features works and public programs by 20+ alternative artists, designers, educators and organizers using wearables, textiles and the body as a medium. Their practices span a range of themes – such as personal identity, body politics, cultural history, sustainability, craft and technology – but all share roots in critically engaging with fashion.
From September 1- October 15, Nobody’s Fashion Week will launch a six week exhibition consisting of an online exhibition, artist residency, participatory workshops, artist talks and other public programming. Nobody’s Fashion Week is co-curated by Lexy Ho-Tai, Jaime Iglehart, Dew Igworia-Onwuka and Johanna Schwab (Austria).
NFW is co-curated by fashion artist, Johanna Schwab, who began her practice of painting on clothes in Vienna in 2013. Currently, Schwab is based in New York City, where she interviews fashion makers and artists about their careers, DIY matters and various ways of forming Connections.
All workshops are free, though $5-20 suggested donations are very much appreciated.
