Li Edelkoort publishes manifesto on why “fashion is obsolete”


Under Education, Edelkoort argues that students are being trained “to become catwalk designers, highly individual stars and divas, to be discovered by luxury brands.”

“As a result the fashion world is still working in a 20th-century mode, celebrating the individual, elevating the it-people, developing the exception… in a society hungry for consensus and altruism,” she writes. “This places fashion out of society and de facto makes it old-fashioned.”
