High-Fashion and Asian local craftsmanship
VIEW EVENT DETAILSAsia Now Art Fair Discussion
We are increasingly witnessing a dialogue, or let's rather say a real collaboration between local traditions, craftsmanship, and contemporary creation. Many exhibitions highlight these links.
The dialogues between popular costumes and haute couture creations allow us to better understand how each other is perceived in society.
Ancient heritage does not only have its place in a museum. It remains a living object for the creators of tastes that will seduce our societies and generations to come. This is the role of the creator who gives old traditions a second life while maintaining local know-how. Here is a delicate but essential game for the benefit of the safeguarding of heritages sometimes in danger, to renew ideas, approaches, styles, and looks, and to integrate sustainable materials into creations, integrating into a challenge for the protection of the planet.
This "New Age Silk Road is part of an era of reinvention, like cross-pollination”. We offer a space to discuss with experts in Asian textiles, brands, and designers.
