The Hybrid Forms artscience Lab at Vrije Universiteit invites you to an upcoming fashion show in the Hortus of the VU, straight out of the lab, based on artscience research from master chemistry student Iza Awad.
Not only is nature our primary source for life, but it can also function as an essential element for sustainable fashion. In her internship at the Hybrid Forms lab at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Iza got to witness the cooperative effect of Art and Science. In the lab she focussed on creating and designing a living fabric from Kombucha bacterial cellulose in combination with plants and algae. In her project, Iza asks the following questions: Do we still create a negative impact when we throw away our clothes after wearing it for one fashion season? Can we eat and regrow our clothes by easily treating it? Can we all be fashion designers when we grow our clothes at home and restyle it everyday?
You are invited to a unique, non-conventional catwalk and performance. This fashion line is made for our future, as a thank you to all the resources our precious earth is giving us.
This event takes place at the Botanical Garden Zuidas, 8 Van der Boechorststraat, 1081 BT Amsterdam
Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
