Support Homo Novus!

Both online and offline we are flooded with a heavy load of stereotypes of beauty standards, forcing us to compare ourselves to others and consuming with no end. Shall we wait until we are buried by the giant fashion waste avalanche?
Together wiht artist group GolfClayderman young people from different Riga neighbourhoods are going to challenge the super power of fashion industry by creating alternative collection from materials found in their neighbourhood. At the DIY fashion show Party Animals they invite to discover their version of beauty and success.
