A new era of fashion


We have entered a new epoch.

Geologists have proposed humans to be the most dominant influence on the earth. As ecological systems mutate in response, we must re-imagine our paths forward.

ANTHROPOCENE will exhibit works exploring this new geological era and its implications for design, textiles, art, and fashion disciplines.

Through ANTHROPOCENE, RMIT students examine the relationships between fashion and geology; How we can weave new human ecologies through textiles, art and design; and The future of fashion in the Anthropocene.

ANTHROPOCENE is part of the 2017 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival Arts Program.
