Outfit of the Week No. 56
Expectations vs. reality
It must have been shortly before COVID-19 happened and changed our lives in general as it did change fashion: I was preparing a few talks and events we had been invited to as guests and panel speakers, thinking about what message to spread fashion wise. Renting, I thought, as this seems to be my number one solution for the fashion and consumption problem we have to solve during the upcoming years. The parcel with a selection of rented garments from Berlin based new kid on the block unown arrived at more or less the same day all events and talks got canceled, while Esther and I realized we would be stuck away from each other in Amsterdam and Berlin.
So, here I was, shooting the first part of our upcoming fair fashion guide without my other “Konsumentinnen” half Esther – who will now be shooting the second part in Amsterdam. I admit that I’m crazy in love with this Oh Seven Days dress I discovered at unown anyways, ignoring the fact that I am heavily overdressed for Skype meetings and lunch breaks at home. And to get to the more important part: A new editorial – our Guide to Renting Fashion featuring unwon – is up on the Mag! Including a welcome discount code for you guys.
