New project on fashion beyond sight
The new project Beyond Seeing wants to find answers to how the blind and visually impaired people experience fashion.
Participants come from fashion schools and organisations for the blind and visually impaired in Germany, France, Sweden, and Belgium. When the project is completed at the end of 2017, they will have held international workshops and an exhibition.
The first workshop was conducted in Paris at the end of October. Vidmina Stasiulyte, a doctoral student in the project ArcInTexETN at the University of Borås attended along with Clemens Thornquist, professor of fashion design.
