For the exhibition REFLECT at WOW the well known fashion designer Aziz Bekkaoui has selected a dozen of young talented fashion designers who will show their work at WOW. Especially for this show Aziz has asked the designers to choose work that reflects how they relate to society and current trends and development in modern society. For example Maison the Faux will show a recycle coat, made out of recycled material from the fashion industry. More examples will follow and show how young designers are dealing with sustainability and other current trends.
Among the young talents in the exhibition are:
Winde Rienstra, Maison the Faux, Michael van der Meide, Anbasja Blanken, Tijme Veldt,Karin Vlug, Anne Bosman, Jorise de Jong, Denise van Gent, Judith van Vliet, Miriam de Waard and Maartje van Hooij.
In the course of his career Aziz Bekkaoui has developed a powerful signature in his fashion and in his art. Typical is his love for innovation, fluid shapes and movement. Nothing is what it seems and nothing stays the same. Aziz Bekkaoui is averse to fixed rules, codes and sectarianism. He is the designer of dance, the choreographer of fashion. Art forms merge, borders are erased. Aziz Bekkaoui also stands by his view: art is not neutral. He does not shy away to take a stand and to work with a vision to bear. Fashion without soul is just textiles. Form without content does not exist for Aziz Bekkaoui. Through his performance art, he dresses the spirit.
Aziz Bekkaoui will open the show at 13 December at 17.30. Doors open at 17.00.
