Post-Soviet Visions: Fashion Panel Discussion
Thu March 8th 2018
Paid Entry (£7.00)
Calvert 22, 22 Calvert Avenue, London, E2 7JP
"In the last couple of years, the fashion world has seen the stellar rise of the so-called “post-Soviet aesthetic”. The influential work of designers Gosha Rubchinskiy and Demna Gvasalia, and stylist Lotta Volkova, has brought post-Soviet culture into the global spotlight and given a platform to new voices from the region. It has also triggered a broader conversation about the notions of local and global in contemporary fashion.
"Join our panel discussion as we explore the cultural significance of the trend beyond Adidas tracksuits and Soviet slogan t-shirts, and examine ideas of an exotic “other” rooted in the Cold War stereotypes, and fashion as a language for politically challenging narratives."
This talk is arranged by the Calvert 22
Foundation to sit alongside their exhibition entitled "Post-Soviet Visions: image and identity in the new Eastern Europe." Follow the Get Tickets
