Concept and design. Thisisnotparis is Maaike Gottschal. Maaike wanted to archive her work for the Arnhem Fashion Biannual. Were she asked the public: Can a non fashionable place as the Arnhem library be the source for a fashion reader and an installation ? A collection of photo’s of visitors of the library in a ‘reading pose’ is point of inspiration for a cat-walk, an acquisition proposal.
The idea was to go back when fashion magazines still we’re searching for their form and fashion language. To create a new beginning where form and content could evolve into its own language.
