!! OMG, WE'RE GAGGING ON...: Fetishism in Fashion at MoBA's '13 biennale !!
When I hear "fetishism" my nasty-ass head goes straight to leather cat-o'-nine-tails and people squatting to deliver the NUTTY MOTHERLOAD, but for this years MoBA fashion biennale in Arnhem, Holland trend forecaster Li Edelkoort presents all facets of fetishism in fashion covering childhood memories, nomadism, regional identity, height obsession, mens' secret accessory collections, monsters [exhibited for children at the local zoo], shamanism, and the history of the apron from domestic to sexual.
"We're all born with kinds of fetishes and have a need for belonging and bondage from birth. It's not just about fashion design, it's about a movement that's happening in society."
Follow the jump to see a small selection of the pieces from some 300 designers being exhibited for Fetishism in Fashion until July 21st.
