THE COURSE

The course is dedicated to presenting Rio de Janeiro as a city with a point of view of it own towards design and creativity.

By the end of the course, participants will have experienced and gotten in touch with a reality of contrasts, with natural elements, filled with adversities, where creativity is necessity, but the lifestyle is always easy, tropical and optimistic - with the intent of promoting insights and a new way of looking at design.

METHODOLOGY

The course is based in activities and experiences outside the classroom. With the support of the knowledge and testimonials of experts and guided visits to various locations throughout the city, the content will be presented according to a programme that includes design, fashion, architecture and creativity. Debates and lectures will complement the themes presented during the two weeks of activities. The course includes specific days when participants will be able to choose the activities devoted to different themes, taking into consideration specific interests.


Participants will develop a final project with the aim of presenting their observations and insights concerning one or several themes and subjects presented. The project may take form of a sketchbook, a film, a photographic documentation and any other form of presentation. The final projects will be developed in a workshop by the end of the course. The aim of the project is to promote discussion and debate concerning individual and collective perceptions towards design in Rio.

UPCYCLING: SUSTAINABLE FASHION

“In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes”, said Lavoisier more than 200 years ago. And transformation is precisely the whole point of the course Upcycling: the ideia is to show the possibilities of changing and creating new clothes using existing clothes as starting materials. The students will unsew, remodel and dye articles of clothes from past collections of FARM (the most carioca brand ever!), our partner. Have you ever thought about how many meters of perfectebly usable fabric are wasted because of simple mistakes or just because they’re not in anymore? Upcycling, a trend at the fashion world whose promess is to make more and more success, besides enabling the creation of exclusive itens, is also an eco-friendly way to make new clothes.

Gabriela Mazepa   is a fashion designer and, since 2007, a big defenser of the Textile Upcycling, the basis of her brand Gabriela Mazepa and the ReRoupa (ReClothing) project. The concept of reusing material that would be trowned on the garbage by the textile industry has scooped her two prizes (IYFEBritish Council 2009 e TOP 10 Greenbest 2011).
