assembly Design Festival

5th to 7th May 2017
Space 01 | Kunsthaus Graz | Lendkai 1, 8020 Graz
Murinsel | Lendkai 19, 8020 Graz

In 2017 for the first time, the opening fashion show took place at Kunsthaus Graz. International and national fashion labels presented their new collections in dialogue with the so called “Weltraumschwitzer” by Erwin Wurm – the oversized pink garment is part of Wurm’s exhibition in Space 01 becoming an imaginary piece of clothes for the amorphous form of the Kunsthaus Graz.
One highlight of the festival was the award ceremony of the Kastner & Oehler Fashion Award endowed with 5.000 euros. The prize was given to the innovative fashion label Eder Aurre.

The show was moderated by Gerald Votava, music by Rainer Binder-Kriegelstein.

The participating labels:
Eder Aurre (ES)
Due d’ORO (AT, Modeschule Graz)
Fac Mariela Gemisheva (BG)
Ferrari Zöchling (AT)
JJ Jaroslava Jindráková (CZ)

KLar KLara Neuber (AT)

The sales exhibition is set up in the entrance hall and Space 04 of the Kunsthaus Graz for three days in a row. National and international designers present their latest work and collections. A casual get-together marks the opening of the sales exhibition following the Opening Fashion Show.

For the first time, the Street Fashion Show takes places on Murinsel (Island in the Mur). Selected lables present their collections besides mainstream on the “island” of the New York artist Vito Acconci.
