24 June WOW Amsterdam transforms Bos en Lommerplein in Amsterdam West from a market square to a futuristic fashion spectacle!
During the day there will be a variety of workshops and activities with the aim to raise awareness for a more sustainable Fashion world, both on the industry and the consumers’ sides.
Take your used clothes and groceries bag with you, and upcycle your clothes with the help of emerging fashion talents. Ask some advice on how to best upcycle your clothes, or swap them during a big clothes-swap market.
In an exhibition, you can also discover all that you need to know about the future of fashion, the new directions in the field and the new gadgets. Technology, however, is not sufficient by itself to instigate change, we also need to think with a new mindset. How will you change your buying habits? How will you adjust your choices regarding clothes? And with which clothes will you build a sustainable relationship? With the participation of designers such as Linda Plaude, Amber Jae Slooten, Lisa Konno, Timna Weber, Schepers Bosman en Eduardo Leon (Avoidstreet).
Obviously, we can’t think about fashion on an empty stomach. We will also provide some delicious and biological treats.
The day will be closed by a spectacular fashion show, during which the public is invited to experience the catwalk from a whole different point of view: it’s all about changing perspectives.
