Fashion in Response: Nano- & Biotechnology
Seminar on textile engineering using nano- and biotechnology
The Slow Fashion Lab, curated by textile artist and lecturer Aprina Murwanti, inspires visitors to take concrete action towards a more sustainable way of dealing with clothes and textiles. It presents examples of sustainable fashion, traditional and local practices from Indonesia that are attentive of the people and environment involved. Visitors to the Slow Fashion Lab are invited to feel, see and learn about sustainable alternatives to fast fashion and engage in DIY-culture. The slow fashion movement is presently gaining significance as a counter-model to so-called fast fashion. Collaboration between textile design and technology is one of attempt to be the embodiment of slow fashion. Together with two designers, who show their products and research on side exhibition of Slow Fashion Lab in Bandung, we hope that the exchange of knowledge and learning could spark new ideas on possibilities of textile development.
