The Alternative Fashion Weekend in Nature

“Be Yourself”

Personal fashion is more than just clothing and make-up, it is also a declaration of who you are and how people interpret you. Some of us stand out from the crowd for the right reasons and have an eye for unusual beauty. Your creativity and your uniqueness is a virtue. There is always a story behind everything, and we want to hear yours. Share with us your unique fashion, clothing, accessories, makeup or hairstyle. This event is not not only an intercultural exchange, but an understanding of people and why they look the way they do and feel good while doing it. For example we can discuss and create images of how does a “Punk” fit into nature?

  1. In Our quite mountain setting we will take time to talk about what is fashion, and how you create your uniqueness. What things about your personal creativity in fashion do you like, and why others like your fashion. As an activity we will cross exchange personal fashions among the participants.
  1. Using elements of nature and our surroundings, create your personal fashion to fit your uniqueness. For example if your fashion favors natural colors and natural fabrics, create a dress out of leaves.
  1. A big part of this event is taking photos and learning how to take a good picture. It is not compulsory for every participant to come with their alternative fashion to present, if you are a photographer and you would like to take part in this event, you can also apply!

Rain or fog, sun or clouds, we will all gather at the Organic Art Ranch at 18.00 in October. The workshop is between the 17th-19th of September. You can also drop in for one day!

At the end of the fashion show, participants will take photos of each other guided by a fashion photographer. The idea is to capture the essence of each style in our beautiful nature setting.
If you wish to participate, send us a message or an email mentioning your alternative personal style.

This photo is from the series created by Victoria Tsirigotis, and it is called “Irritation” because it’s not usual to wear things like that in our normal life. But what is normal in today’s world?
