wandel made in mönchengladbach
Under the motto "Wandel", students from the Department of Textile and Clothing Technology at Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences will present their creations at the National Press Ball on 29 November 2019 at the Hotel Adlon in Berlin. The idea for this unique performance for the students came into life at the beginning of June 2019 on the occasion of the PolitFashion Night in Berlin. The Department of Textile and Clothing Technology of Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences convinced not only the NRW state father Armin Laschet, but also the representatives of Bundespresseball GmbH and one of this year's partners, the Gesamtverband textil+mode, with their fashion show.
In order to be able to present creative interpretations of this year's ball motto "Wandel", an internal university competition was initiated without further ado, from which 17 designs were selected. Young and fresh robes were created, which are all celebrated here. The all-embracing change is presented both by a targeted selection of raw materials and technical implementation: from structural change in NRW to climate change and the metamorphosis of insects, styles can now be seen that have been created using modern sustainable processes such as laser technology, zero waste knitting technology or digital printing. Eight of the styles were selected for the grand appearance by a diverse of experts.
