In collaboration with Het Nieuwe Instituut, Clothes for Progress joins forces with Amsterdam's Pop Trading Company and artist Eddy Varekamp. The garments from the new capsule collection will be launched after this event. The clothing items have been made from overstocked Pop Trading samples and have been customised with overprinted illustrations by Eddy Varekamp and tactile messages inspiring change.
The evening will start off with a short presentation about the project, followed by a panel talk which will be moderated by all-round creative Shaquille Shaniqua Joy.
