The fourth edition of Mode and Mode contains a reprint of the lookbook publication Friction / Parade 99, created by Dutch fashion designers Keupr/van Bentm collaborating with Experimental Jetset for Paris haute couture fashion week in 1999. To launch the issue, the exhibition ‘Experimental Jetset – Superstructure’ at RMIT Design Hub hosted a reading by fashion curator Matthew Linde with Laura Gardner from the original Friction / Parade 99 publication; a fictive, poetic timeline that recounts the moments leading up to a fashion show that never took place. Held on the main gallery space of the exhibition, the event reflected on the possibilities of collaboration between fashion and graphic practices and the conceptual potential of writing and publishing in the field of fashion.
