    I was recently contacted by Clara and Taynah, two masters students who are writing their thesis on fashion and physical disability. They asked me if I could pass their contact details and information on their project along to anyone who may be interested in taking part. 

    If you are interested please contact Clara and Taynah on the email address below.

    Invitation to research project

    We would like to invite you to take part in our research project. We are two students enrolled in the fashion management masters programme at the Swedish School of Textiles in Borås, Sweden. We- Clara Herrmann and Taynah Oliviera- are currently working on our thesis.

    Our thesis will research how fashion is perceived by people with physical disabilities, how it can help them showing who they are or where they have difficulties to fulfil their needs and wishes. If you feel like this topic addresses you personally, you are exactly what we are looking for! We would be very happy if you contact us and we can exchange our thoughts in an interview!

    We appreciate your help and time!

    Best regards,

    Clara and Taynah

    Artist Stromae designs and launches first clothing capsule collection.

    After successfully conquering the music world with two commercially successful hit albums, Belgian-Rwandese artist Stromae has been flexing his creative bones some more to create the singer’s very own debut clothing line and collection.

    Derived from a rearranging of the his musical moniker (which is itself a play on the word ‘maestro’), MOSAERT is a Belgian creative label spearheaded by the talented singer and composer. Under this label, Stromae has developed his brand’s first capsule collection inspired by English grammar school style, checker and isometric patterns, and African wax colors. The lookbook modelled after typical school portraits and class photographs. 

    For now, made in Europe (France and Portugal) t-shirt and sock range is only available online, at Colette stores in France and Hunting and Collection in Belgium.

    What is the Allied Media Conference, you ask? 

    http://amc.alliedmedia.org/amc2011/about/amc-mission

    AMC Mission

    The Allied Media Conference cultivates strategies for a more just and creative world. We come together to share tools and tactics for transforming our communities through media-based organizing.

    AMC Vision

    PARTICIPATORY MEDIA TO TRANSFORM OUR SELVES & OUR WORLD

    The Allied Media Conference advances our visions for a just and creative world. It is a laboratory for media-based solutions to the matrix of life-threatening problems we face. Since our founding in 1999, we have evolved our definition of media, and the role it can play in our lives – from zines to video-blogging to breakdancing, to communicating solidarity and creating justice. Each conference builds off the previous one and plants the seeds for the next. Ideas and relationships evolve year-round, incorporating new networks of media-makers, technologists and social justice organizers. We draw strength from our converging movements to face the challenges and opportunities of our current moment. We are ready to create, connect and transform.
