Fetishism of Fashion - M°BA

New corporate identity for M°BA

M°BA Director Olga Godschalk called it a “a gift from Lidewij Edelkoort”. The curator of the most recent edition of the fashion biennale did more than just think up a great theme (Fetishism in Fashion). Trend forecaster Edelkoort also renamed the Arnhem Fashion Biennale M°BA.
According to Edelkoort M°BA is a much clearer way to propagate what the biennale is and what it stands for. M°BA has a ring to it. It refers to the biennale’s cultural identity and is easy to pronounce for the biennale’s large and international audience.
The noticeable º in M°BA represents the playful and creative character of fashion design.

RELIGIOUS FETISH


Grayson Perry argues in favour of the motion “The world needs religion even if it doesn’t need God” at this IQ2 debate at The Tabernacle on 24th January 2011. Grayson Perry (born 24 March 1960) is an English artist, known mainly for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing. Perry’s vases have classical forms and are decorated in bright colours, depicting subjects at odds with their attractive appearance. There is a strong autobiographical element in his work, in which images of Perry as “Claire”, his female alter-ego, often appear. He was awarded the TurnerPrize in 2003.



T IS FOR TRANSVESTISM



Transvestism (also called transvestitism) is the practice of cross-dressing, which is wearing clothing traditionally associated with the opposite sex or gender. Transvestite refers to a person who cross-dresses; however, these are clinical terms that carry potentially negative connotations or implications of mental illness. Cross-dresser is a term that more accurately describes the behaviour and avoids clinical or pathological implications. Transvestism has been referred to in the Hebrew Bible. The word has undergone several changes of meaning since it was first coined in the 1910s and is still used in a variety of senses. In some cultures, transvestism is practiced for religious, traditional or ceremonial reasons. For example, in India some male devotees of the Hindu god Krishna, especially in Mathura and Vrindavan, dress in female attire to pose as his consort, the goddess Radha, as an act of devotion. In Italy, the Neapolitan femminielli (feminine males) wear wedding dresses in a procession that takes place through the streets, a tradition that apparently has pagan origins.

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
Love.
Pain.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget

Some Shoe designer showcases great shoes in the dark with only the models mobile-phone shining on the feet - or directly at the face of the model - BOO!

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.
