The End of Fashion Education ?→Towards New Beginnings

talk & discussion

What can fashion education do?

With its first public event fashioning education explored the potentials of fashion education beyond the tertiary level. Against the backdrop of some of the fundamental shifts and challenges in fashion education “The End of Fashion Education? Towards New Beginnings” acknowledged the need for reform and re-orientation in the way fashion is learnt and taught. It invited different perspectives on the positive educational impact: more humane, more social and more collaborative/collective. Nadine Gonzalez of CASA 93 (Paris, France), Mikele Goitom & Arabella Stewart of ARAKELE (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) and Kim Hou of ABOUT A WORKER (Paris, France) shared their respective works framed by an introduction of Franziska Schreiber & Renate Stauss of FASHION IS A GREAT TEACHER (Berlin, Germany).
