Yesterday  Slashstroke took over the Fashion Space Gallery for a day of Campaigning for Fashion Activism, a workshop in making stuff happen, playing with loose statements and cheap slogans, a project exploring group dynamic and creative output. Concept, production and output, begun and finished in 5 hours, a campaign without a real cause, a manifesto for the sake of it, a direction because momentum feels good.  A reaction to fast fashion and loose contexts.

During the day we produced large scale graphic templates/layouts for a Zine  on which everyone involved could design content. Through collage, statement making, image making, photography and cut and paste all participants contributed to the production of #CFA ZINE. The original draft copy is now in the Gallery but we will be making more copies available soon. Keep a look out.

There ended up being a lot of  TITS and “SCREW YOU FASHION”, so we were pleased to see that good taste and fashion aesthetics are as subjective as ever.

Special thanks to all those involved in the day and to Polona Dolzan and Ligaya Salazar at the Fashion Space Gallery.
