SHOWS: CIFF RAVEN
RAVEN SPRING/SUMMER 2017
10-12 AUGUST 2016
RAVEN PROJECTS at CIFF continiously seeks to innovate the tradeshow experience through its impressive presentation and live events designed to stimulate and inspire discovery. Under the direction of Kristian W. Andersen (CIFF, Director) and curated by John Skelton the F/W 2016-17 story sees a unique emphasis on emerging talent and conscious brands that are championing ethics within the fashion arena.
Wales Bonner, Nicholas Daley and Curieux are just some of the names to be featured from the emerging talent list, whilst brands such as Story MFG and Rombaut lead the line for the conscious selection.
Housed within a 2000sqm exhibition style installation, RAVEN PROJECTS delivers a 360-degree olfactory environment, which serves to uncover a journey through its highly curated brand list and specialist product selection. Live demonstrations, performances and compelling guest speakers have been introduced to the program, providing a 3D element that is designed to encourage engagement with the idea of ‘conscious consumerism’ in fashion. A custom designed stage will host these events alongside a roster of live music that will be transmitted across the space via a specialist sound system throughout the 3-day show.
