Shape Shifting Fashion

From Standing Room Only, 1:30 pm on 13 April 2014

Shapeshifting is a conference organised by AUT featuring local and international guest speakers, academics, and innovators involved in the world of fashion and textiles. The conference is the first of its kind in the world, and its function isn't about discussing ways to build brands and to talk about trends, but a chance to think outside the box; a means to inspire, network and spark discourse. Sonia Sly talks to Christina Cie about the Christchurch Earthquake and its impact on clothing and identity for the community at large, US artist Nick Cave takes his 'body' of work into extraordinary musical and performing heights with 'Sound Suits' and Co-Director Andreas Mikellis discusses the way in which the notion of 'fashion' is changing and the importance of looking to the future.
