The idea behind VOID is simple: six fashion designers open up their world to be interpreted by a creative team. Thus, the young are no longer ‘ones to watch’, where all that’s visible is their relative newness; instead, their ideas are celebrated, confronted and expanded. The results prove that the best things in fashion come in teams.
VOID is a global initiative by 1 Granary, developed to support the next generation of fashion designers. Through a series of unique, diverse and memorable events and projects all over the globe, VOID intends to find alternative ways for young designers to coexist with big brands and aspires to contribute to the education of the new creative generation.
Being inexperienced has one advantage: it’s easier to think outside of the box if you don’t know it exists. After all, new ideas can’t breathe when they’re framed by old habits. But what happens to an industry that lays out a one-size-fits-all, ready-made path for newcomers? Supposedly, there is only one way to do it right: build up an online following, get picked up by the right buyers and editors, ignore your student loan debt and show in Paris. Convention, is not a friend of creation; collaboration, on the other hand, can nourish it.
