From Sept 9th – 11th 2020, the 10 awarded artists of the first round of Re-FREAM (https://www.re-fream.eu/) and their co-creation teams give you insights in their 9 months co-creation experiences, showcasing live making-ofs of their prototype processes and sneak peeks in the labs. They show their final outcomes and explain the potential of their projects to contribute to a more responsible future of fashion.
Join this session to hear more about Elisabeth Jayot (FR) and her Re-FREAM project Fragments Garments.
The Fragments Garments circular fashion supply chain aims at inverting the current fast fashion paradigm. To fight the environmental damages created by cheap clothing produced at a fast pace in low-wage countries, we propose to relocate within small urban manufacturing units akin to Fablabs, the production of garments, – moreover designed seamless and modular -, based on a worldwide digital pattern trade. This project adds a 4th dimension to the classic Reduce, Repair, Recycle concept by involving the consumer who can easily dismantle and transform clothes according to changing trends, needs or sizes, thus leading to a longer life-span.
