JOIN Collective Clothes an ongoing design and research project in which fashion is explored as a collective practice, focusing on designing and making clothes together. The essential tool of the project is an open source modular system that consists of four different shapes: top (J), sleeve, (O), trouser leg (I), or part of a skirt (N). Through this online open source and a workshop series, everyone is invited to design and make a single piece of a garment. The garment pieces made by all participants of the project, together create different outfits.
During the workshop on June 25th participants were invited to assemble and disassemble all the garment pieces and to explore the various garments that can be made with the pieces especially made for the exhibition through an online workshop. They also created new items for the Archive.
