The promotion of culture relies on each individual who is passionate things that he/she is fond of and enthusiastic. When it comes to popular culture, "youth" is undoubtedly the key. From radio to television, movies to the internet, actors, singers, athletes, and even virtual characters in video games and anime drive trends and create cultural icons. In the previous Tokyo Olympics opening ceremony, anime elements were used as the theme, and activities such as skateboarding, street dance, and esports have gradually become Olympic events. These things, beloved by the youth, have leaped onto the mainstream stage. And fashion stage corresponds to this phenomenon as well.
In cities around the world and various fashion weeks, it's not difficult to observe that street and youth culture have become a canvas for various creative expressions. Fashion no longer adheres to predefined boundaries, and style is not confined to the runway. The infusion of culture adds value to fashion. As a result, this season's opening show incorporates cultural elements belonging to the younger generation into the fashion scene, collectively crafting a captivating narrative for the season. It reflects the distinctive characteristics of the young generation and contemporary concerns.
This season's Taipei Fashion Week delivers numerous exciting and spectacular brand shows, set to dazzle with creativity throughout the month of October. Spanning from visual arts, indigenous culture, traditional craftsmanship to the current youth culture, the cross-disciplinary themes of Taipei Fashion Week have become a focal point of media attention. With the addition of the "Outside Events Schedule," featuring the "Contemporary Craftsmanship and Fashion Crossover" exhibition and the Taiwan Women Artists Association's "Her Artistic Fashion" fashion show, these events portray the diverse and interdisciplinary forms of contemporary fashion.
Because of culture, the fashion industry has more possibilities, attracting more capable and talented individuals to participate. Taipei Fashion Week is not only a platform that stimulates the economic aspects of the fashion industry but also a stage to showcase the cultural and design essence of Taiwan. Through fashion, we expect to demonstrate the new strength of Taiwan's fashion and culture.
