Fashion Innovation 2
Beckmans College of Design interprets the Nobel Prize
Fashion students at Beckmans College of Design have made their interpretations of this year’s Nobel prizes. Their creations are adaptations of the discoveries made by the Nobel laureates in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, peace and the Sveriges Riksbanks prize in Economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel.
The creations are at the same time suggestions of how formal dress can be renewed and relate to a modern dress code. The project also explores what unites Nobel laureates and fashion designers – namely creativity. Courage to think in entirely new lines, daring to question established theories and innovative combinations of insights from different fields.
The exhibition was also shown at the Röhsska Museum of Design and Applied Art in Gothenburg in April 2013.
Students of visual communications followed the process and documented the results in form of films and a leaflet. The design process is shown in a video.
