Curated by Dr. Claudia Banz of the Museum of Arts and Crafts (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe) Hamburg, the exhibition presents the not-so-glamorous side of what is now known as "fast fashion". With digital installations and interactive displays, the exhibit offers information on the industry's effects on the environment, the fast-paced consumerism and the working conditions in clothing factories. 

A special area of the exhibition tagged the "Slow Fashion Lab" highlights the green alternative, with works by designers Noa Elizabeth Goren and Bojana Draca, alumna of ESMOD Berlin (International University of Art for Fashion) mixed with works by top UP fashion students. Their works would be the featured examples of sustainable practices in fashion. This special section is co-curated by ESMOD director Friederike von Wedel-Parlow and UP's Monica Rayala and Leynard Gripal along with other faculty members of the UP College of Home Economics.
