What can fashion design really do right now? is the intrinsic question that arises in a time of chronic political, environmental, health, and social struggles amidst lingering fears of an imminent crisis.
With the exhibition Crafting Fashion for Possible Futures, curated by Camille Boyer and Miriam Kathrein for the Austrian Fashion Association, the Austrian Cultural Forum New York presents for the first time a comprehensive overview of contemporary Austrian fashion design and shows that design holds the potential for change and possible, better futures. The exhibition has been extended through September 30, 2022.
