The promotion of culture relies on every individual's boundless passion for the things and people they love. When it comes to popular culture, the youth are the key drivers. In cities around the world and during various fashion weeks, it is easy to observe how street culture and youth culture have transformed into various forms of creativity on display. Pop culture no longer adheres to traditional boundaries, and fashion no longer exists only on the runway. The infusion of culture has added depth to fashion, making youth culture the centerpiece of this season's opening show.
This season's Taipei Fashion Week still promises a multitude of exciting brand showcases that we can eagerly anticipate in October, bringing us astonishing manifestations of creativity. Additionally, this season has introduced the "off-calendar" events, including the "Contemporary Craft Fashion Crossover" exhibition and the "Her Artistic Fashion" fashion show by the Taiwan Women's Art Association. These events showcase the diversity and cross-disciplinary freedom of contemporary fashion, adding new dimensions to the fashion scene.
As you can hear, we have consistently emphasized the importance of culture. Because with culture comes industry, with industry comes greater possibilities, and it allows more talented and capable individuals to join in. This paves the way for a more promising future for Taiwanese fashion.
