WOW Amsterdam transforms Bos en Lommerplein in Amsterdam West from a market square to a futuristic fashion spectacle. With a variety of workshops and activities, for young and old, the aim is to raise awareness for a more sustainable Fashion world, both on the industry and the consumers’ sides.
13:00 - 19:30
In an exhibition, you can 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.
With the participation of designers:
WORKSHOPS & ADVICE
13:00 - 17:30
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? Take your used clothes and grocery bags with you, and upcycle your clothes with the help of emerging fashion talents. Ask some advice on how to best transform your clothes, or swap them during a big clothes-swap market and clothes recycle festival (Mix voor kids / Kleding Recycle Festival).
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.
FOOD & DRINKS
Obviously, we can’t think about fashion on an empty stomach. Some delicious and biological treats will also be available in a relaxing area at the sunny side of the square.
