After two prior incarnations in Luxembourg in 2007 and Lausanne in 2008, the continually evolving international exhibit Dysfashional has been installed in Paris’ avant-garde art space Passage du Désir, running through November 29. Instead of clothing, the show “explores a range of materials that turn fashion into a way of representing personal identity and experience,” according to the show’s curators, Luca Marchetti and Emanuele Quinz. To that end, designers like Hussein Chalayan, Maison Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, and several other high-profile figures in the fashion industry have contributed artistic pieces and installations that “reflect their imagination and creative universe,” ultimately focusing on fashion as a means of creative exploration. After Paris, Dysfashional will move on to the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin from June 18 – July 18, 2010. For more information, check out http://www.passagedudesir.com/.
