Fashioning the future

04 Sept – 12 Oct 2018, Wageningen


To celebrate a 100 years of Wageningen University & Research, WUR organises an exhibition showcasing products that provide a glimpse of what a circular fashion future could look like. For this special event Iris Houthoff developed a watch band made of mylium. It was part of the sustainable outfit designed for Prof. Louise Fresco (President of the Executive Board of WUR) that she wore at the opening of the academic year 2018-2019.


Next to the circular outfit, this exhibition showcases the results of collaborations between scientists, students and fashion designers in the context of research projects with ArtEZ University of the Arts and State of Fashion. They have worked on questions such as: What new, sustainable materials can we develop for the textile industry? What is an ideal, fair, clean and sustainable fashion system? How does this relate to the behaviour of consumers and new business models? Novel products from well-known fashion brands can be viewed, both in Impulse as well as in the town hall of the city of Wageningen.
