Party Animals

GolfClayderman (Madona)
28 August 19:00 | Free entrance

Both online and offline we are flooded with heavy load of stereotypes on beauty and successful looks, forcing to compare ourselves to others and consuming with no end. Shall we wait until we are buried by the giant fashion waste avalanche?
Together wiht artist group GolfClayderman young people from Imanta, Mežaparks and Pļavnieki are going to question and challenge the super power of fashion industry by creating alternative collection from materials found in their neighbourhood. They welcome to discover their version on beauty and success in the DIY fashion show Party Animals.
