A creation fascinates when it stimulates obsession. It’s no Christian Louboutin’s privilege; it lives within every designer. Because what keeps us constantly after fashion is the crave for excitement, fetishism comes as a natural topic to explore when it comes to clothing aesthetic. The current exhibition at Mode Biënnale Arnhem, ‘Fetishism in Fashion’ offers a reflective journey through our self-esteem, desire and the different perspectives on beauty.
Every two years, MºBA (Mode Biënnale Arnhem) displays the current state of affairs in worldwide fashion and design. Now in its 5th edition, this biennial has the unique quality of being a cultural event which both the fashion industry and a broad public flock to. In June and July 2013 one of the world’s most famous trend forecasters Lidewij Edelkoort, will give her vision on fashion within the theme of Fetishism in Fashion through exhibitions, seminars, workshops, pop-up stores and films.
