Lidewij recently had a very interesting interview with Donatien Grau from AnOther Magazine. We would like to share it with you. Enjoy! "Lidewij Edelkoort is probably the world’s most famous trend-forecaster. Her work encompasses advising brands in fashion and the commercial world, such as Gucci, Estée Lauder, Lancôme or L’Oréal; teaching: between 1999 and 2008, she served as Dean of the Design Academy in Eindhoven, and now works on founding a new University in Poland; editing: she is the founder and editor of the magazines View in Colour and Bloom; and curating: she organised several shows, including "Skin Tight: the Sensibility of Flesh", at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. In 2003, she was named as one the 25 most influential people in fashion by Time Magazine. How would you connect fashion to elegance? What is the role of history and art history in your conception of fashion? Would you describe fashion as a language and a discourse, as Barthes did it? It might.
