After working in the fastpaced fashion industry in Paris, Hong Kong and Amsterdam, the photographer, designer and artist Birgitta de Vos decided to take some time out to travel. What initially started as a one year plan soon turned into a decade-long endeavour to capture the endless ways in which time is used and treasured by different makers the world over. Her book, Out Of Fashion | The New Fashion, provides an astute and poetic view of her adventure; its pages brimming with the nuances that tie together texture, textiles and travel. Venturing far away from the ‘more-for-less’ attitudes of the fashion highway, Birgitta met artisans who embrace time as a gift. Materials made from natural fibres are her focus: they age with dignity acting as a gentle marker by which to recognise – and appreciate – the passing of time.
This timeless full colour 412 pages publication supplies us ample illustrations to reverse rush. And instead of going back in time it takes us into the future where silent branding, mending, contemplative clothing and unplugged crafting, reminds us again that we are creative beings.
