TAKE Festival for Independent Fashion and Arts
Interview with Camille Boyer
Take – Festival for Independent Fashion and Arts is initiated and organized by the Austrian Fashion Association and creative headz (organizers of VIENNA FASHION WEEK).
For two years now, Austrian Fashion Association has been supporting Austrian fashion designers on their way to professionalization and internationalizing. The co-operation with creative headz started with the presentation of the Austrian Fashion Awards during VIENNA FASHION WEEK.14 and will now – in 2016 – be expanded to an autonomous festival event format.
For five days, Vienna will become a fashion platform on which the Austrian fashion scene will present its contemporary diversity.
The characteristical premises of ALTE POST in Vienna´s first district will become stage and platform for fashion performances and shows, presentations of the latest collections, exhibitions, screenings, lectures and talks.
The awarding of the AFA – Austrian Fashion Awards will also be embedded in the festival. This year the ceremony will take place under the artistic direction of Markus Hausleitner (House Of The Very Island’s...).
Concern and aim of Take – Festival for Independent Fashion and Arts is to highlight the topic of fashion from diverse perspectives and to allow very different views, including critical and partial contradictory opinions.
Co-operations with fashion and arts institutions, training schools, galleries and party organizers, a call for projects and curated formats will lay the ground for thought-provoking impulses and discussions as well as for amazement and entertainment.
Experts and protagonists of the international fashion scene, amongst them Wally Salner, Elke Gaugele and Monica Titton from Austria also add to think outside the own fashion box.
