IIDA NY's Pioneering Design Series: The Emancipation of Everything: Philip Fimmano

When: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM MONDAY, MAY 8

Where:Congregation Beit Simchat Torah 130 West 30th Street, New York, NY 10001

Join the IIDA NY as we take a look at how radical change is shaping the 21st century, by analyzing consumer attitudes, lifestyles and economic trends. As the long-awaited follow-up to Trend Union's ANTI_FASHION season, this lecture will take a deep dive into analyzing consumer attitudes, lifestyles and economic trends in 2017. Radical change is needed to give shape to the 21st century and with that a huge wave of innovation and rethinking needs to be set in motion. By diverging from the old ways and rupturing from tradition, we can give room to intuition and inspiration, free from self-imposed conventions and self-invented logic.
