Fashion & RE-Design - USA

Cultural profile 2022

Travel to New York and Washington with Fashion & RE-Design 

Trendspotting, recycled materials, fashion, fashion shows, design workshops and much more.


The trip

We are looking at traveling to New York and Washington. We hope to visit a fashion school and museums. Maybe even experience a fashion show. In addition, we will be trend spotting both on the street, but also in stores. We also hope to find a relevant workshop. This is the first time Fashion & RE design will travel to New York and Washington, so the students will largely help shape the trip together.


The Lessons

Fashion and RE design is primarily a skills course. We work with all elements of the creative process from brainstorm and mindmap to finished product.

We work with recycled materials such as bed linen, tablecloths, curtains, from which we sew new clothes. This could be trousers, dresses, tops, mule bags and scrunchies. In this way we use already existing fabric that is easy to work with.

During the profile period you will learn basic sewing technical skills such as working with a pattern and sewing on a sewing machine. If you already know how to do this, we will challenge you with new techniques.

We will work both on jointly defined tasks, but also on individual projects.

In addition, we would like to have guest teachers and presenters who can teach upcycling, redesign, sustainability, etc.
