We make M-ode presents: WOW Fashion Inside Out

Urban Special

Duurzaam mode-event

FacebookWOW Amsterdam transforms Bos en Lommerplein in Amsterdam West from a market square to a futuristic fashion spectacle.

There will be a variety of workshops and activities, for young and old, with the aim to raise awareness for a more sustainable Fashion world, both on the industry and the consumers-sides. Take your used clothes and groceries bag with you, and upcycle your clothes with the help of emerging fashion talents. Ask some advice on how to best upcycle your clothes, or swap them during a big clothes-swap market.

In an exhibition divided in two of stores, the visitors will discover all that they need to know about the future of fashion, the new directions in the field and the new gadgets. Technology, however, is not sufficient by itself to instigate change, we also need to think with a new mindset. How will you change your buying habits? How will you adjust your choices regarding clothes? And with which clothes will you build a sustainable relationship?

The day will be closed by a spectacular fashion show, during which the public is invited to experience the catwalk from a whole different point of view it's all about changing perspectives.


Innovation and the renewal of the fashion industry definitely play a bit role in the work of young fashion designers, and vice versa the impulse that they provide through their ideas is transforming the discipline.
