Matter Loci x Matter Globalis — Results

BIO 50 24th Biennial of Design – Ljubljana, Slovenia

Matter Loci x Matter Globalis (ML x MG) is a fashion lab, a traveling exhibition and a living open archive. Through an open call, we asked local makers to produce a series of garments that explore and present local resources − in term of materials, creativity and production. The first open call focused on Slovenian wool as rare local material. The resulting archive documents both the products and processes involved in their realisation. From amateur to professional, local traditions to global experimentation, ML x MG grows through the contributions of participants in the fashion system. ML x MG aims to generate new perspectives and real alternatives to the delocalised, contemporary system of fashion production and consumption.

“We want to challenge this kind of mindset”.

 

Quite international members of Fashion system team are planning to challenge the mindset where everything from abroad is more valued than materials and design produced locally.

Open Call, 13 February 2014
The Fashion System

 

From textile production to retail, merchandising and all the stages in-between, the means by which we clothe ourselves are complex and multi-layered. Tradition and technology are part of the fashion industry, while links between designers, producers and consumers introduce new dynamics into the fashion system. Questioning the institution of fashion and its many facets, this team will seek to understand the human position within the machine that clothes us.

From Jury Report:

 

At a time of growing interest in folkloric and craft traditions, Fashion System is an intelligent and engaging approach to raising awareness of a neglected Slovenian resource.
