NEWS LETTER

KNITWEAR FOR PEOPLE AND PLACES ©

by Anne-Grethe Filtenborg would hereby like to inform you about it's fashion presentation, which took place on July 11th.

Hosted by FOAM FASHION and FRAME, the event was part of Fashion Week Nederland’s DOWN Town program.

The event took place in Felix Meritis; one of Amsterdam’s beautiful old monuments and cultural strongholds.

A LIVE Fashion Film Production and Performance staged in an exhibition of the designers work included both live and stationary elements, seeking to bring the viewer in close, whilst playing with the roles of spectator and object.

The setting; an open wide space, facing the canal at Keizersgracht, was turned into a minimalistic gallery showcasing tableau vivants of a graphical nature. Three separate podia were in use, enabling the models to move between floor space and podia, ever forming new visual compositions.

The stationary exhibition elements included an interior project as well as a presentation of research, showing experimentation and innovation of new jacquard techniques, exploring three dimensionality in texture, pared with transparency and optical illusion.

For the event a soundscape was composed which added to the serene atmosphere of both performance and gallery setting.

A fashion film is in the making and will be launched in Octobre ’14.
