Situations Vacant: Resourceful Yet Opulent Fashion

Telling the tale of a lone creature ravaging the ruins of human society as we know it, creating resourceful yet somehow opulent coverings, Situations Vacant is an immersive fashion narrative. Unaware of any other sentient being in current existence, the creature still feels an urge to adorn itself in selected objects salvaged from the refuse rubble. An exploration of what fashion can mean when there is no one left to impress. Forward thinking and nothing like your average runway, the designers hope to give a glimpse at possible trajectories of the fashion industry, and fashion as a concept as we move into the near and very distant future. With a focus on small-batch production and sustainability, each designer provides insight to some of the major ethical dilemmas confronting the fashion industry.
