M°BA 13

fetishism in fashion



Every two years, MoBA (Mode Biënnale Arnhem) displays the current state of affairs in worldwide fashion and design. Now in its 5th edition, this biennial has the unique quality of being a cultural event which both the fashion industry and a broad public flock to. From June 8 to July 21, 2013, along with fellow curators, we will unveil a vision of unique fashion through exhibitions, seminars, workshops, pop-up stores and films.

As an avid lover of fashion and textiles, I have decided to analyse and to dissect our collective obsession with fashion through the idea of FETISHISM. The content will range from our fundamental need to cover ourselves to the eccentric extremes to which our desires can take us on the quest for beauty.
