MODE UNCUT The Open Fashion Design Network – Re-patterning the fashion industry, stitch by stitch!
Yesterday, the 14th January 2014 we soft launched the recently established Open Fashion Design Network: MODE UNCUT.
MODE UNCUT aims to challenge the existing system of the fast fashion industry, with its related non-transparent production and consumption methods. It is a web based platform/network for exploring new designer-producer-consumer relationships by opening design for everyone. This network aims to inspire and encourage everyone to create alternatives to the mainstream by offering a broad variety of project examples, connect motivated members and provide a space to experiment and discuss ideas.
The name MODE UNCUT relates to the idea of taking the existing (e.g. the current fashion industry),but opening it up, repatterning it and then finding a new ‘mode’ or a new ‘way’ of doing.
Therefore, we hope to find many active and motivated followers and members who spread the word. If you would like to join our network by suggesting interesting projects, links or become a member, send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org, including:
your interests, a short biography, a thumbnail portrait picture, any links e.g. website/ portfolio, where you are located and what you could offer to the network…
We are looking forward to our growing network and it’s projects!!!
