„VIRUS FASHION” is the biggest and most important fashion show in Northern Lithuania! The international fashion design show VIRUS MADA, which will be held at the Šiauliai Athletics and Wellness Center, will surprise, delight and provoke the audience with fashion design innovations, bold ideas and aesthetic solutions. The collections of designers from Poland, Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania will reveal contemporary fashion trends, creative manifestos, actualizing the issues of human rights, discrimination, the relationship between man and nature, war, consumerism, sustainability, religion, self-irony, childhood memories and the world of the future. Many collections are winners or nominees of various European fashion weeks.
„VIRUS FASHION” is not only collection presentations. These are also performative artistic performances. During the show, a dance duo from Italy will perform the performance „COME NEVE”, the concept and choreography of which was created by Adriano Bolognino. This performance is the transformation of the feeling of personal well-being into dance. It is a wonderful and masterful work that intertwines the idea of community, body plasticity and the beauty of crocheted costumes. The thread turns into a dress, the movement into a dance, and the whole picture into a wonderful spectacle.
During the evening, the performative jewelry collection „Puo/-das – Puo/-salas” by the students of Neringa Poškutė-Jukumienė and Vilnius Academy of Arts Telšiai faculty will be presented. This collection consists of fragments of enameled pots with a decorative function. The author’s work was noticed and evaluated on the international platform of contemporary jewelry, published among the 25 best works of ready-made jewelry creators.
The bright, colorful and conceptual VIRUS FASHION show will be heated with its musical vibrations by the great composer Antanas Jasenka and Co.
The art and fashion show will be held at the Šiauliai Athletics and Wellness Center – the event is returning here for the fourth time, as this impressive combination of sports architecture and art gives fashion collections new meanings.
