FA-SH-ART! | Fashion Creativity & Arts at RAM Shanghai
FA-SH-ART! is the first RAM series of events related to Arts & Fashion creativity.
The first edition proposes to explore the mapping and connections between Dutch and Chinese Fashion scenes which are involved into very strong creativity processes, reinventing the codes of Fashion, observing the contextual mutations, extending the fashion scene to design and visual arts. Our worldly acclaimed speakers and researchers will introduce Chinese and Dutch Fashion scenes, questioning the way Chinese and Dutch designers are pushing the limits of Fashion to beyond categorizations, reductive identifications in order to invent fresh concepts, outstanding clothes and exciting transdisciplinarity.

Most foreign fashion designers and media want to see a brand and not the production behind it. We would like to show a real Chinese brand that shows creativity and quality. I do not want to use something superficial, but to discover something inside of these 5,000 years of history. Maybe something you can’t see, but you can feel.
Uma WANG 王汁 [Fashion Designer, UMA WANG, Shanghai]
Due to the number of artists, media types, and students, Beijing has far more bohemian types seeking their own distinct look. One might say that Beijing is hip, while Shanghai tries to be chic. With all of its universities, galleries, and studios, Beijing is the cultural capital of China as it has been for centuries. For the entirety of its much shorter history, Shanghai has been Western-looking. It comes as no surprise that it would seek to imitate the styles of Western capitals.
Nels FRYE [Creative Director, Stylites, Beijing]
In our opinion, nothing is waste, if you can research it for its own character. In the beginning we made some garments didn’t make profits, but afterwards we began to research the silk and work with it in new ways.
