Fashion styling workshop:

Style to Celebrate Cultural Diversity

14 October 2017 (Saturday)
12:00noon - 7:00pm

Fashion is our skin of choice. What we wear represent how we feel about ourselves.
Narrative Made works with handmade textiles, especially those that carry stories of cultural identities. Due to the lack of written format of their languages, a lot of ethnic groups have been, for generations, weaving motifs and telling stories of their ancestors into their costumes.

Sharon de Lyster, our founder, is running a cross-cultural fashion styling workshop in celebration of diversities. Come in your own chosen outfit, and pair with heritage costumes from an Asian culture – from Japanese Boro to Miao’s silver headwear! Experience a different civilization through modeling and a fashion shoot. 

No advanced booking required. Simply drop by the exhibition to participate. First-come first-served.
Participants can bring home their fashion shoots that celebrates cultural diversity.
