UPDATE: Due to unforeseen personal circumstances, Li Edelkoort has had to cancel her trip to Cape Town.
This spring, trend forecaster Li Edelkoort encourages us to take a moment and consider the world around us and embrace life, in all its colourful facets.
Design Indaba is pleased to announce a Trend Union Seminar, “Bliss”, presented by Li Edelkoort taking place at the Pavilion Conference Centre in Cape Town on Thursday 29 September 2011. At R950 a ticket, this includes:
Looking to summer and lifestyle trends, Edelkoort will explore the major movements that will characterise the next couple of months. What are we wearing? How are we socialising? And how are we relating to the world around us in a time when a renewed respect for the natural world is crucial.
Edelkoort will be looking to these questions in what she describes as a happy moment of being together and sharing. She will present an audiovisual experience that promises to engage you on more than one level, looking at summer styles and trends in fashion, décor and lifestyle.
Understanding the complexities of life today, Edelkoort will also address the human need to simply breathe and live, and the search for new identities. It’s about filling life with meaning, and gaining a new respect for the wonder of life and how to go about achieving this through our consumer choices.
Edelkoort says: “We will aspire to a time out of time, we will search for a world within a world, a space of daydreams and wonder. A moment to experience simply being there. Something to be grateful for. To enjoy the moment.”
This three-hour event starts at 13:30 on Thursday 29 September and places are limited, so be sure to book your place at Computicket now.
