This dynamism lies in the variety and possibilities of what can be perceived, like colors in the optical spectrum. Each point on the spectrum represents a potential reality and shows the vast and limitless nature of what lies ahead. The Fashion Show encourages us to think about the fashion industry’s future through different perspectives and, at the same time, to be aware of technological advances related to the view of society, its progress, and development.

Is it materials, innovative practices, or interdisciplinary collaboration that will ensure design will stand up in the future? What does the designer need to consider to ensure that the design is not just a superficial object but a beneficial product for the needs of the target user? And is it even possible to make a living from creative work when the demands on designers are ever-increasing? This and much more will be shared by designers working under the creative hub KUMST, which supports creators with physical space as well as mentoring and practical tips for the commercial application of their designs.

Workshop: Crafting Tomorrow- Discovering DIY materials and their properties

offline
Show less
9:00 – 12:00 building 44, Svit complex (Vavrečkova 7029, Zlín) Capacity is limited to one class, Admission: 100 CZK /student

The workshop focuses on creating DIY (do-it-yourself) materials and exploring their possibilities. These materials offer the opportunity to rethink existing manufacturing processes and the properties of industrialized materials to create a personal and personal experience of making. During the workshop, participants will learn how to extract pigments from different rocks and minerals and then use these pigments to experiment with printing, dyeing textiles, as well as creating DIY bioplastics. The emphasis will be on the process of making and interacting with the material itself to discover and understand its properties, which are variable and often unpredictable. The workshop is, therefore, not only about the practical part but also about speculating together about the future of materials.

Petra Vicianová is a graduate of Design School Kolding in Denmark, where she studied the Design for Planet master’s program, focusing on approaches to sustainability in design. Nowadays, as part of her Ph.D. studies at the Textile Design Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava, she is exploring the possibility of natural dyeing, which allows her to further understand the process of creating with unknown and future-changing materials. Petra is also actively trying to open discussions on rethinking the social approach to textile materials and their properties.
