About this event

The Global Fashioning Assembly (GFA) invites you to join in a gathering of global fashion makers which will take place from 21 - 23 October 2022!

Reaching out beyond institutional, disciplinary, and geographical boundaries each part of the GFA is hosted by a coalition from a different geography in the world. Sharing online and offline programming every aspect of the GFA will be self-represented, activated, and governed, with international and local audiences and communities engaged and connected equally across diverse locations.

Our three-day event will explore fashion through panel discussions, fashion workshops, demonstrations, studio visits and more!

For the first Global Fashioning Assembly Biennale (GFA22), we will be joined by the following hosting communities:

  • New Zealand Fashion Museum | New Zealand
  • Aika Jaxybai | Kazakhstan
  • Sonya Battla | Pakistan
  • Own Your Culture | Kenya
  • Centre for Research of Fashion and Clothing | Croatia
  • Fashion Liberation Collective North Africa | Egypt, Morocco, United Kingdom
  • The Research Collective for Decoloniality & Fashion | Netherlands
  • African Fashion Research Institute | South Africa
  • North Carolina Museum of Art | United States
  • GiFt | Ghana
  • Selly Raby Kane | Senegal

The programme aims to rethink fashion as a multitude of possibilities, rather than a normative Eurocentric/colonial framework falsely claiming universality. The Global Fashioning Assembly offers instead a radical plurality of roads into the future that bear witness to the survival of fashion diversities and the reversals of erasures.

Event will take place over Zoom. Programming details TBA. Follow us on Instagram and visit our website to stay up to date!

Registration is free, but please consider supporting the programme by purchasing either the Supporter or Donor tickets, as the project is made possible by the efforts of local initiatives, dedicated scholars and independent collectives.
