The Future of Fashion is Now, opens at the Museum Boijmans, in Rotterdam, a centre for fashion innovation, on 11 October and features around fifty designers who blur the line between art and fashion and experiment with textiles, materials, and shapes, offering their visions for what the future of fashion is. The list includes both established and emerging designers such as (my favourites) Viktor & Rolf (The Netherlands), Christophe Coppens (Belgium), Craig Green (U.K.), and Rejina Pyo (Korea), as well as up-and-coming designers, like the Japanese Pyuupiru. Don't miss it!

Quote of the week: Annie Lennox on Beyoncé's take on feminism

During the interview with Pride Source, Lennox referred to Beyoncé's recent MTV Video Music Awards performance where the word 'FEMINIST' was displayed in large letters behind the singer. "I would call that 'feminist lite'. L-I-T-E," she said. "It's tokenistic to me. I mean, I think she's a phenomenal artist – I just love her performances – but I'd like to sit down with her. I think I'd like to sit down with quite a few artists and talk to them. I'd like to listen to them; I'd like to hear what they truly think."
