Optional an installation by Marleen Elenbaas
About: Marleen Elenbaas graduated in 2013, completing her BA in Fashion communication at the Utrecht school of the arts. In  her work parts of clothing tell a story within the context she creates. She does not think in form of a collection, she rather puts her designs in another context to assign a different value. During the design process she wants to give herself a challenge, by means of construction and attention for detail Elenbaas tries to push her own boundaries.

"In daily materials, details and compositions I often discover new findings. These trouvé’s can be beautiful just because of their position, the way they move or lie down, or maybe the surrounding can be an extra addition. Thinking out of daily things that make life seem so normal, where you maybe pass by quickly and don’t notice: these things are important to me. Standing still for a moment can be extraordinary. See and discover things of which the meaning is not to be underestimated." (via www.marleenelenbaas.com)

Vonck and Groenewegen share a deep fascination for what they define as
'Tactile Techne', technology that generates motoric cultural memory and creative physical agency.
They regard teaching as a means of transfering cultural history. The effect of this transfer manifest itself in creative and playfull changes in the students present physical life.
Both see fashion as an act of creation and interpretation, not as an act of consumption and canonization.

Robots by Frans-Pieter Vonck
About: Frans-Pieter Vonck (Bagdad 1967) is fascinated by what he regards,"the
absurd consequences of using modern technology in the transfer of cultural
Vonck studied tropical agricultural engineering in Wageningen. He graduates on the design of a neural network for the Amsterdam Sewage Department. After working a few years as a water systems engineer he
starts teaching science at highschools. In Vonck's lessons students are taken on an exploration of the bizar
consequences of new technology in everyday life. Often new instruments need to be created to reveal hidden meaning of modern science. For instance, students used the blurred windowed glasses (part of the WAXED CAPES
AND ROBOTS installation) in order to observe the near future of the so called
'augmented' reality. In 2013 Vonck wins a fashion price at the Arnhem Mode Biennale (the
"Fetish"- editon, curated by Lidewij Edelkoort). His contribution was an ominous apron made of car mats, accompanied with self composed music. "Never was an apron so rebelious", comments the jury 

Waxed capes by Conny Groenewegen
About: Conny Groenewegen (1973) explores the evolution of ideas at the interface of fashion, technology and design. She situates herself where inventions in production technology define themselves into new artifacts that change how we perceive ourselves. 
While being fascinated by the technical and societal implications of the industralisation of fashion design, her work is always a reflection of the human measure. The tension between mechanisation and handwork, industry and artisan, is clearly observable in her designs. She defines her style as “soft tech”, technology that has been touched by human hands and gives us a hopefull vision for the symbiosis between human and machine and creating a more intimate relationship between technology and the body. Collections, selection:
-“Rupture”, lasercut contours, with wild erratic slids,  by a frantic beam of light. Giving insight in the consequences of optimizing mechanised pattern cutting.
-“Alchemy”, transformations of eartlhy materials like wool and silk into new elements of style and devotion.
-“Primary Explorers”, hiding its secrets in the depths of wrinkles, crumples and crinkles offering a sensual exploration for the touch and the skin. Fabrics processed from thin layers of time that make the models look like elemental travellers. Opening show at the fashion week Tokyo, spring 2013.
-Mercedes-Benz Dutch Fashion Award winner —2011
“The jury was instantly and unanimously convinced by the artistic integrity of this designer who provides the fashion industry with much needed oxygen”
Conny Groenewegen teaches ”design and fashion” at several (inter)national fashion and design institutes. She is mastering both technical and practical aspects of fashion design which she combines with an intuitive curiousity in the ideas of her students.
Before establishing her brand in 2007 Conny Groenewegen has worked with international designers and brands such as Alexander van Slobbe, Yoshiki Hishinuma and Droog Design. Conny Groenewegen participated and went to China with SALON/BJ during Bejing Designweek in 2013, she worked on her RAW Capes in the Dashilar Area in Beijing
