Event | Finissage ‘A durable Swagger-scape’ at OSCAM

Join us at OSCAM on December 16th for a celebratory finissage in style as part of our exhibition A Durable Swagger-scape curated by Musoke Nalwoga in collaboration with Fashion for Good Museum and Sandberg Institute’s Making the Over ground Underground Program.

With the Finissage, we have invited prominent photographers, stylists, and writers on the Amsterdam scene to contribute to three panels. How can stylists act as connectors between pop-culture and sustainability? How is the image of pop-culture captured through photography, and how can we incorporate sustainability into these mechanisms? How can we write sustainability into pop-culture? Those are some of the questions that the panels will explore. 

The program will finish up with some tunes, visuals by Aida Ra Mana, drinks and bites and a clothing swap. So come prepared with max. 3 of your best quality clothing items to swap and give your wardrobe an update! Please keep in mind that swap items must be washed and undamaged to be able to participate, we also won’t be accepting underwear.

    Event | Ancestral Echoes: A Fashion Performance

    You’re invited to “Ancestral Echoes,” a fashion show by fashion designer, dancer and music artist Jazmon Voss that transports you into a realm where heritage and modernity intersect. “Ancestral Echoes” draws its inspiration from Afro-Native American roots and celebrates three looks crafted from a blend of vintage, scrap, and recycled materials. These looks blend fantasy, movement, and emotion, adding depth to the storytelling of the collection. Stick around and grab a drink with us after the performance.
