As part of this issue some of the designers were asked to Define Materialism : 


''New Era of SYMBIOSIS and CONNECTI-VISM between textile and human, material and emotion.


It reflects a Period of ‘IDENTITY CLOTHING’. Manifested through SLOW-FASHION and

born through preservation, awareness, sustainability, interactive & customizable design, futurism.


Clothes as SECOND SKIN, empower & safeguard a sense of serenity & curiosity of mind. Fueling our senses to wander and escape.


The materials elasticity enables it to mold itself, to liberate the body in movement & rawness cocoons it in unique comfort.


This Change in design system is reflective of human values. It exudes primal energy of identity.


Mate-Rialism of now embodies a personal relationship with the garment, where handcraft is elevated & breathes life into its soul. ''
