"Why don’t you", the cultural proposal of the Superior Center for Fashion Design

The Higher Fashion Design Center of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (CSDMM) has launched a cultural proposal, "Why don't you" with which it intends to bring the world of fashion closer through social media.

Designers and teachers of the center, present in each edition of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid, such as Ana Locking, Juan Vidal, Miguel Becer, the soul of Mané Mané, Daniel Rabaneda, creative director of the Angel Schlesser firm, together with industry leaders and future design promises add to this initiative.

On the CSDMM Instagram profile and on their website they will share their recommendations on documentaries and films that show the evolution in fashion or art conferences.

This Friday, Ana Locking proposes for this ‘Bill Cunningham New York’, a documentary directed by Richard Press that delves into the figure of Bill Cunningham, photographer for The New York Times who captured trends on the streets with his camera.

For his part, Juan Vidal, on Sunday proposes the documentary 'Antifashion' that reflects the evolution in fashion in the 90s through the work of designers such as Helmut Lang, Hussein Chalayan or Yohji Yamamoto and interviews with Ann Demeulemeester, among others .

In addition, Juan Vidal presents another proposal: the Conference Cycles of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum taught by Guillermo Solana, artistic director of the museum, which analyzes works from the most outstanding collections.

On Saturday 11, Miguel Becer suggests the visualization of the great moments that fashion has lived in recent decades such as the Jean Paul Gaultier streetcasting parade in 1994 or the participation of Raf Simons in Fashion Talks - one of the fashion conferences most outstanding- where he detailed how he carries out his creative process.

In the coming weeks, CSDMM students, as well as designers and references such as Rubén Gómez -BIIS-; Pedro Mansilla, sociologist and critic; Natalia Bengoechea, director of Moda Smoda, among others, will contribute content to delve into little-known details of fashion.

Among them, the influence of the figure of Sydney Pollack, director of 'Danzad, Danzad, Damn' that served as inspiration for the staging of 'Deliverance', the Alexander McQueen collection or the documentary 'The Next Black, a film about the Future of Clothing ', about the present and future of the sector and the challenges in sustainability.
