Printing Fashion Festival #5 edition
Printing Fashion returned with its #5th edition held on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th of March. The Festival created a space for discussing the trajectory and evolution of printed media and the fashion of printed publication today, featuring key contributors in the field.
Through debates, lectures and conversations, the focus of this year’s dialogue is around the concept of ‘Resistance’ by reflecting on the practices of criticism as resistance, the relationship between print and politics, the hidden figures of the magazine, printing and gender, and the resilient formats that confront the new challenges of the publishing industry. We invited contributors to delve in the analysis and debate about these practices of resistance through printed media. This dialogue was held with collaborators such as Byronesque, Cora Corré (The Vivienne Foundation), Astrid Vorstermans (Valiz Publisher), Reading Room, Yousra Zein (Vogue France), Jeppe Ugelvig (Viscose), Alessandro Merlo (Coriandoli), Tayeau Fabrice (Feu Magazine), Simone Rossi (IUAV University of Venice), Saul Marcadent (IUAV University of Venice), Hanka van der Voet (Press & Fold), Elise By Olsen & Else Thorenfeldt (International Library of Fashion Research), Carla Fernández, The American Library in Paris, Diktats, among many others.
We extend our gratitude to KD Press, our partner, and distributor of our eponymous magazine, and to the International Library of Fashion Research for co-streaming this edition.
