The screening will be presented by Hardie Duncan, Russian VICE publisher.
Fashion Week Internationale is a series on VICE investigating fashion shows existing outside the usual catwalk realms of New York, London, Paris and Milan. Fashion weeks so intriguing and original, you'll think VICE made them up. In the shows first season VICE travelled to Pakistan, to visit Islamabad Fashion Week, which takes place in a bomb shelter. Columbia's surgically enhanced Fashion Week, New York's Full Figured Fashion Week (featuring plus sized models), among others.
The screening correlates to the exhibition theme of “Cultural Heritage”, where ideas originate from. Obviously, there are rising fashion cultures around the world. Nigeria, Islamabad, Colombia, and Cambodia episodes – they all represent emerging economies where cultural heritage is pertinent in designers’ work.
