Thinking about fashion…iD programme out

Isn’t she gorgeous? She’s Thinking About Fashion ahead of iD 2016 and an hour of short talks by Otago academics with that title, on aspects of fashion including marketing, shows and collecting, on Wednesday 16 March at the university as part of the wider iD programme, which has just been released.

The talk’s a companion to a unique exhibition of books and magazines “FASHION RULES OK” showing at the Central Library Special Collections, University of Otago March-June.

As always, there’s plenty more goodies at this year’s iD. The usual:  the main shows; tours at Otago Museum and Dunedin Public Library, DVDs at Dunedin Public Art Gallery (Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Fashion!); talks by designer judges (Emilia Wickstead, Kate Sylvester); jewellery (Lynn Kelly), pop-ups, sustainable fashion,more talks.

Then there’s this year’s one-offs. How about shoes? Local shoemaker Louise Clifton has arranged a visit from internationally renowned shoemaker Takano Keitaro of Clemitas Ginza’ Japan. Mr Keitaro’s shoes will be exhibited at Olveston, and there will be a conversation with Jane Malthus and Louise. For more information about the visit, check out Lou’s Boosted page for the visit.

DPAG honours local fashion deity with “Margarita Robertson: 3.33.12”, celebrating the personal style of  theNom*d founder and creative director by displaying 12 looks drawn from her private wardrobe, alongside footage of the fashion collections from which many garments originated, and ‘cities that have inspired her selection’.  There’s a talk on Friday 18 March.

Around the corner from DPAG, Mint Gallery is showing Desi Liversage’s Beyond the Anti-Fashion Manifesto, ‘a critique of fast fashion and Li Edelkoort’s anti-fashion manifesto…with a collision of stitch, found clothing and colour’.
