Cultural collaboration: Shanghai fashion students in Dunedin

9 November 2012

Shanghai fashion students in Dunedin for cultural collaboration

10 Fashion students from Shanghai, China arrive in Dunedin this evening, fresh from showing with Otago Polytechnic Fashion Design students at the prestigious Shanghai Fashion Week last month.

That show will be recreated somewhat within this year’s special 21st anniversary edition of Otago Polytechnic’s end-of-year fashion show, Collections 12.

While in Dunedin, the students and four staff from the Shanghai University of Engineering Technology (SUES) will also continue a cultural collaboration that began in Shanghai last month: the Dunedin students’ outfits were photographed in some of Shanghai’s most interesting and iconic locales, and now the Shanghai students will have their garments photographed around Dunedin. Images from the sister cities will be compiled into a book, and the project will also form the basis of an academic paper.

“We are really excited to be able to host this delegation, after we were provided with such a fabulous experience in Shanghai,” says Margo Barton. “Our strong relationship with the International Fashion Academy Paris at SUES has led to this exciting cultural exchange and collaboration, which is of immense benefit to all students and staff of the School of Design.”

The on-location photo shoots will take place on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 November.

Collections 12 takes place at 8.30pm on Friday 16 November at 102 Anzac Avenue (Former Display n Sell building). Tickets cost $50; and are available from Otago Polytechnic’s School of Design reception, 4th Floor, H Block, Corner Forth and Union Streets.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
