D_O_M - in the light of the green transition
Not just a fashion show, but a spectacle! D_O_M introduces designs that last longer than a season or a trend. Through the D_O_M performance, the story of the Estonian brands is told, their essence is interpreted and acted out on a site specific show.
However, in the light of the green revolution, a question arises: how much new clothes do we really need?
Rushing the fashion industry behind due to the overall desire for novelty, and creating more and more items into the world will not solve the global problems we are facing.
At the same time, pressuring designers and artists with successively updated solutions raises a question: what was wrong with the existing one? Yes, new ideas, innovation and development are needed. But at the same time, let's maintain and transmit the best existing solutions, let's use them to maximum potential before the hand grabs for a new one.
We save the world if we save a square metre of soil already. We can use already purchased clothes for an absolute maximum period of time, style them smartly and care for them consciously.
This year's D_O_M honours and puts in the limelight these valuable products that are already brought into the world. These clothes are worth mending and bequeathing.
SORCERER - the source for everything magical
SORCERER is a creative collective of five artists, who value recycling materials, making one-of-a-kind and sometimes sculptural pieces, hoping to sustain uniqueness on a bigger scale. Their aim is to provide an emotional experience - the accessories, clothing and artefacts displayed to viewers often look wild and irrational, traditional gender roles and aesthetic standards have been destroyed, along with the hierarchy between materials. SORCERER deliberately chooses to juxtapose natural and artificial aesthetics in order to produce contrasts and opposing surroundings. The artefacts transform the wearer into a creation that is a reflection of SORCERER’s own understanding of the world.
Kelpman Textile - appreciating the creation
kelpman textile creates high-quality interior and clothing accessories and small-scale clothing. The ambition is to create comfortable, warm and healthy textiles for the northern climate.
Designer Mare Kelpman controls the entire production process, weaving the fabrics in Finland with old industrial Dornier machines. Textiles with legendary author patterns are finished without using chemicals. The remaining fabric details will find a worthy position in unique clothing and home furnishing products over time. So the ecological footprint is minimal.
The much-loved brand is celebrating a magnificent anniversary this year - over the course of a decade, the brand has built its way up and established a warm place in the hearts of Estonians.
Mare Kelpman, applause!
