Exhibition in PUB Department Store, January 28th–February 7th
Beckmans College of Design
press release ///
The final year students in Fashion and Advertising and Graphic Design at Beckmans College of Design begin the last term of their bachelor’s programmes with an exhibition in PUB Department Store in Stockholm. The exhibition takes place between the 28th of January to the 7th of February, coinciding with Fashion Week by Berns. The exhibition is an initiative of Beckmans College of Design in collaboration with the PUB Department Store that Paul U Bergström founded in 1882. For PUB, the project is a way to support and encourage young Swedish designers and communicators. PUB is a department store that takes fashion seriously, and truly adds something that can not be found anywhere else in the Swedish fashion business.
Twelve fashion students present visionary collections of 3 outfits, each with an ambition to add something to the fashion system. What would we change if we could? What if fashion were different? Each student has been given the chance to make their personal statement, and creative freedom to explore his or her personal relationship to the current norms of the fashion world. The result is as diverse and of as high standard that can be expected from Sweden’s most respected fashion degree. Fifteen students in Advertising and Graphic Design have worked on issues related to how fashion is communicated They have also created the concept and strategic platform of the exhibition and created fashion films to visualize the concepts of the fashion students. The shared result consists of 12 collections, 12 fashion films and 12 statements starting with “In a perfect world”.
