Alternative Processes


20 February

27 February


Alternative Processes Fashion Week stands as a new, unique event celebrating artists who found themselves at the intersection of fashion design and the realm of alternative processes.

It's a week-long tribute to photographers and designers who employ unconventional printing methods on fabric and textiles. The unique nature of working with alternative processes on textiles presents a set of technical hurdles. We seek to explore these challenges collectively, sharing insights, techniques, and innovations that can help overcome these obstacles.
We do so by inviting chemical manifacturers, artists, technicians, curators, fashion designers, business owners to contribute to the conversation.

We are seeking artists and designers who combine cyanotype, anthotype, and other photosensitive processes with textiles to create wearable art and fabric-based designs. We are interested in all kinds of pieces created using fabric and alternative processes, and the innovation through shape, pattern, texture, color, layering techniques.
