A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes

A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes

NOMA is holding since February an Exhibition called  A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes until May 28, 2018 presenting rare pieces from one of the world’s largest private collections of Alexander McQueen fashion.

“NOMA’s first major fashion exhibition will feature contemporary designers showcased in an immersive gallery presentation. This exhibition’s bold couture explores different archetypes of femininity, and how these mythic characters manifest through storytelling in fashion over the past decade” – quoted by NOMA official website.

#NOMAQUEEN exhibition displays more than 100 experimental gowns, head pieces, jewelry and shoes. Designers also include Iris van Herpen, Charlie Le Mindu, Comme des Garçons and others.

 

Lauren Marie Reyes of Papalodown Agency

The exhibition was developed by curator Sofia Hedman from MUSEEA and Barrett Barrera Projects showcasing fashion, design, femininity. They also involved an expert advisory team formed by Faduma Aden, Kimberly Jenkins, and Anna-Klara Mehlich.

HOW SLOW FASHION WORLD GOT INVOLVED?

SFW Change-Maker Faduma Aden Social Entrepreneur, Advisor and Creative Director behind Jemmila and Contelier was selected as advisory board member. She focused on making the exhibition more inclusive and accessible to a wider audience. From the inclusion to new and established artists to “making sure we include cultural diversity” in  the texts close to the displayed designs . The exhibition explores seven personality types of a Queen – or, metaphorically, a woman: The Sage, Magician, Enchantress, Explorer, Mother Earth, Heroine, and Thespian. For that work Faduma selected as contributors Ruby Veridiano  for researching and writing about Filipina-Chinese history/mythology and me to write about the Peruvian/Mexican history/mythology. Furthermore Faduma also decided to include Somali mythology and proverbs. Check out in our Instagram for more here.

As a Peruvian building a community and living abroad, it is always a responsibility to represent your culture and roots wherever you go. Therefore this opportunity is a great contribution to visualize our culture. This contribution is an excellent example of how a community of change-makers can join forces, connect to fantastic opportunities and work together for a positive outcome.
