MODUS is a platform for expanded fashion practice that seeks to bridge the divide between theory and practice within fashion. The MODUS project is initiated by Ruby Hoette and Caroline Stevenson and is a long-term collaboration with Onomatopee Projects.
Contemporary fashion culture is seeing practitioners actively seeking to challenge traditional ways of working and question the very definition of their discipline. MODUS is a platform for those working in this expanded field of fashion to build connections between emergent practices that propose alternate value systems and thus different ways of thinking, doing and being fashion.
MODUS – Conversations is a 3-day mini symposium that invites various practitioners from the field of expanded fashion practice to delve into conversation and discussion. During each of the three days, one word from the MODUS glossary will serve as the focal point of the conversation / panel discussion between these various practitioners. The symposium will generate connections and content for a new publication that we will launch next year. The installation at Onomatopee serves as the backdrop of the symposium, and has a growing library function that accompanies the ongoing conversations we will have surrounding expanded fashion practices.
