Exhibition | GROW: The Future of Fashion

Commissioned by the museum, young Dutch design talent has transformed brand new, sustainable natural materials such as orange silk, vegan (circular!) leather from coconuts and cork and textiles from the banana plant into unique fashion statements. Established names Karim Adduchi and Iris van Herpen are also part of the exhibition and show their own creations made from biomaterials.

How can fashion be sustainable, look good and be good for people and our planet? Our new exhibition showcases the culmination of our GROW Talent project, which brought together six young creatives to explore what the future of fashion could look like.

Working with new materials like orange peel silk, circular vegan leather from cork powder and coconuts, and fibres from banana plants, emerging fashion designers have crafted unique garments and accessories to show the potential of these new biomaterials. Accompanying the garments is beautiful visual and written storytelling of the entire process behind-the-scenes.

In addition to the work of the young designers, you can also see creations from Dutch couturier Iris van Herpen and fashion designer and illustrator Karim Adduchi.
