Respecting Tradition: Ethical Textile Design and Inspiration

Join fashion industry experts who approach design using traditional motifs and textiles and how they have balanced contemporary fashion and Indigenous culture.

The history of fashion is rife with examples of designers being “inspired” by indigenous cultures and traditional designs, with no acknowledgement of the source or collaboration with original makers. We know that a new paradigm is needed, but how can it work? What examples exist of fashion respectfully and ethically drawing from traditional knowledge? What are the challenges of working with traditional textiles in the global modern market?

In this conversation Lenora Cabili, Creative Director of Filip + Inna, and Norma Baker-Flying Horse, Founder of Red Berry Woman, will share how their brands have approached designing using traditional motifs and textiles, and how they have balanced contemporary fashions with indigenous culture. This discussion will be moderated by Tara Gujadhur, Co-Director of the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre.

Participants:

Tara Gujadhur of TAEC Laos, Lenora Cabili of Filip+Inna and Norma Baker-Flying Horse of Red Berry Woman

CIPRI Workshop. Garment to Value: A Value-Based Approach

Measuring the multifaceted value of Traditional Cultural Expressions

What are some of your considerations when buying a garment? Why do you hold a few pieces of garments so dearly as opposed to others? These are some of the questions that we will deal with in this session. In Garment to Value: A Value-Based Approach, you will learn to see the intangible value associated with Traditional Cultural Expressions.

 

The workshop will offer a value-analysis and measurement model that will help you change your perspective and challenge you to look at garments and assess their value in a different light. We will dissect how garments are viewed versus how garments should be viewed, their interconnectedness and how this connection can add value to the choices you make.

Participants:

Facilitated by Monica Moisin and Mónica Parra.
