What kind of clothes will we wear in 100 years? What does the future of textiles look like? The children discover the wonderful world of textiles by working together on the sustainable fashion of the future.
Discover the fashion of the future
To many people, it is important what clothes they wear. Nowadays it has become normal to buy a lot of new clothes and to change outfits regularly because something is out of fashion or because it no longer fits. Some people may have a new wardrobe every year. But is it good for the world/environment to buy so many clothes? Can it be done differently?
In this educational program, the children will discover it for themselves, by getting to work as fashion designers of the future. The focus is on imagination, design, collaboration and exchanging ideas about the future. What will the world look like in 100 years and what kind of clothes will we need? The children will work in groups to make the garment of the future.
