As part of the Raven Special Projects, Copenhagen tradeshow CIFF invited Machine A’s Stavrol Karelis to curate an exhibition space. Right next to Alyx Studio, i-D magazine, MM6, Oakley and Showstudio, 1 Granary presented VOID.
The new initiative was created to help young designers, not simply by promoting them, but also by connecting them to established industry insiders. By bringing together those who know the industry with those eager to change it, VOID aims to start a conversation on the future of the fashion system. Last year, we united six designers with prominent photographers and stylists, creating a series of stunning imagery. This year, the exhibition is moving to New York at Red Hook Labs, with an additional fifty designs from four fashion schools – Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art in London, The Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp and Parsons School of Design New York
Before crossing the Atlantic however, the project made a pitstop in Copenhagen, to present at fashion fair CIFF. This time, we were joined by five young designers, who will each get the chance to meet potential buyers and other industry insiders.
