Catwalk show calling out ARU’ students
Updated: Oct 14, 2019
The dress was displayed as part of Anglia Ruskin’s Global Week, which celebrates worldwide diversity, with the support of the university’s Centre for Pluralist Economics. The catwalk show started with a video which shows the beauty of Venezuela, then follow by images that show the precarious conditions that the Venezuelans are living as consequences of the hyperinflation. I gratefully acknowledge Zheko Georgiev’s help making most of the visual materials for this event and genuinely support this project from its origins.
The message that was delivered that night was about "fighting intrepidly and bravely for justice" and the change we want to see in this world. Also, I wanted to emphasize that young people should not seek a life where money is the goal, (since it can become worthless as it is represented with the dress), but strive to create a life surrounded by genuine friendships, exert oneself to awake to their mission and making decisions today on how they want to live their lives in the next years. That life which will ultimately be their “true work of art”.
