The premiere of the SHOW MODEKLASSE
19 staged in the University’s own building for the first time is being accompanied by other news: A brand new magazine – „Arachne
– An Almanac on Clothing and Culture“ – will be published in the Edition Angewandte and will be presented directly from the
printing press at the fashion show. At the same time a fare-well will take place as the head of the class, Hussein Chalayan,
will leave Die Angewandte at the end of this academic year. As every year the graduates will not only show their designs and
outfits at the SHOW MODEKLASSE 19 but also present their works to an international jury of experts. And, last but not least,
the donated awards and prizes for the students and their work will be announced during the fashion show.
„Arachne – An Almanac on Clothing and Culture“
Young, unconventional positions of fashion design
from Vienna and a connection between fashion, intellectual sensibility and an extraordinary visual language will characterize
this new almanac. Furthermore, the new magazine will give insight in the creative work of the fashion department at the Angewandte.
The name of the magazine refers to the figure of the greek mythology: Arachne was a talented mortal weaver who challenged
Athena, goddess of wisdom and crafts, to a weaving contest; this hubris resulted in her being transformed into a spider.

direction by Federico Protto, Alumnus of the Modeklasse. 2019. Edition Angewandte at Birkhäuser. English language. 204 pages.
