Fuck art – let’s fuck
And this is already the heart of the Munich Fashion Week: the joy of life. Besides the obvious dictates of fashion and its conventions, this slogan shows in the variety of designers and haute couture itself. Apart from classical outfits made of different materials like fabric, leather, latex and everything in between, the visitors will encounter a lot of young fashion designers from the international avant-garde.
Also, fans of the AVANTGARDISTA will meet old acquaintances from the lifestyle scene again. This diversity is the essence of Show Room and Fashion Shows and attracts the public as well.
The organiser Christian Eberle recalls and core statement of the event, which takes place the third time now: “My experience from more than 10 years of being an organiser of scene events shows me: Fetish Fashion and Couture is often displayed in the wrong light. Because Fetish Fashion is foremost the latter of these two: Fashion. It‘s devised, constructed and presented by various creative, versatile, ambitious people. It’s multifaceted, surprising, extraordinary and awe-inspiring like hardly any other fashion direction. Runways of the world are hinting and citing more and more about this thrilling topic and style. Only the ones representing this fashion in the first place are missing there. The scene and the target audience of customers may be small. But the designs, ideas and the phantasy are worth a big stage with spotlights and glamour.
The AVANTGARDISTA wants to provide this stage. We’re thankful for all the people supporting us: Models, photographers, make-up artists. Blogger, journalists, artists. Our team, the whole wonderful crew helping at assembly and dismantling, technics, catering and so on. Everyone who works in the background to ensure that everything works just on point. The AVANTGARDISTA is a heart‘s project to present lifestyle fashion in the proper light it deserves.”
Furthermore, the producer elaborates: “The AVANTGARDISTA is pillared by the vision of creating a stage for designers. To gain attention and the perfect perception. The fundamental basic thought, the connecting element through all steps, is the thought of cooperation. Within the highly professional world of fashion industry, equipped with enormous budgets for presentations and advertorials, such an ecological niche can only be made visible and attracting with the help of combined forces and mutual support.
It‘s our dearest wish to shape the AVANTGARDISTA with this mutual support and collegiality, as well as through the feeling and thought of community. Designers, models, photographers, influencer and organisers are working together and supporting each other, so we can accomplish the maximum of everything for our Fetish Fashion Scene. It‘s not about competition but about cooperation. The AVANTGARDISTA is an event of collaboration and potentials.”
This cooperation already bore fruits in previous years for a lot of small labels and newcomer. Medial awareness and attention is increasing for designers, who are often only One-WoMen-Shows. The engagement and reach on social networks and print media is enormous. Many designers are only known to the public by now due to their AVANTGARDISTA participation. So this concept proves itself long-lasting and sustainable. Beautiful photo galleries and professional videos are providing the fashionistas with input for the fast-forward moving (online) media world.
Besides the art of fashion there will be an art exhibition again as well: Photographer and rock musician Vince Voltage from Stuttgart is heading towards the top of German and international photography scenes.
With his mostly provocative people shootings, this artist wants to rub people up the wrong way. He’s displaying the dirty side of phantasy to the outside world and gains a shocking attention like Robert Mapplethorpe once. This effect is intensified by the aesthetics of photography, contrasting the depicted subject yet again. This results in a Vouge-like appearance of the photographs, whilst the motif plays with dark and secretive passions of the soul.
All in all, the next AVANTGARDISTA is bound to be one of the highlights of this fashion year. Because life is a party and this event shows how to dress for it.
