New Things

""Technology is really the only thing through which you can do new things.' I've always said this. Because everything has been done, really, one way or another. Technology allows you to create new things, new combinations, new relationships, new interactions. It's as simple as that, really."

- Hussein Chalayan

An old-fashioned way of thinking

"We are generally a bit too materialistic. It’s the opposite of what a designer should tell you. Designers always try to sell more, but I think there’s something to be said for timelessness. The idea that we define our identity through what we own is an old-fashioned way of thinking."

The Next Generation Couturier: Marga Weimans

Piece from "Wonderland" by Marga Weimans

Fashion designer Marga Weimans is incredibly gifted at creating sculptural clothing that are also works of art. It's not surprising then, that she cites architecture as one of the  inspirations for her stunning avant-garde pieces, but what is surprising, is her unusual choice of materials. She often incorporates things not commonly used in haute couture; mixing fabric with materials like fiberglass, wood, resin and tin. With her fearless sense of color, material and design; training at the prestigious Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts and having two collections shown at Paris Couture Week, Weimans is well on her way to establishing herself as the most innovative couturier in fashion.

Julie Gilhart on Making Sustainability Mainstream

“If we can become more educated, we can educate these people that have a lot of impact on the planet and we can also create models that are economically attractive because nothing's going to happen unless people can make money from it- that's the way this world exists and I don't think there's enough philanthropy in the world to change the world. I think we have to make philanthropy very successful and it has to make people money. That's how the big players are really going to take it on.
