April 22-26, 2014 | 7pm-12pm daily
To celebrate and showcase innovative talent in fashion, art and design.
The |FAT| 2014 theme INFASHION/UNFASHION explores opposing values, visions and expressions around fashion and art. INFASHION refers to that which is in vogue and on trend. UNFASHION refers to sources of influence beyond trends such as art, culture, industry, nature, politics, religion, society etc.
With a constant shift of what is current and in the now, the worlds of fashion and art are perpetually evolving and changing. Each night will showcase two opposing ideas in contradiction to one another. Designers/Artists will present one of the two opposing themes of a particular night, or will explore how those two contrasting ideas can work together.
