Prada Launches ‘Possible Conversations’ Talk Series On Instagram
Back in 2012 The Met launched its Spring 2012 Costume Institute exhibition, entitled Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations. The exhibit played on a dialogue between the two design contemporaries out of lock with the reality of time. Now that time is in abundance the house revisited the title when launching their new talk series Prada Possible Conversations.
Like most companies navigating the new normal, Prada’s current landscape being fundamentally re-shaped by limitation. However, that hasn’t stopped the Italian luxury house from debuting a series of live dialogues between thinkers, cultural arbiters and fashion figures across the world. A digital iteration and evolution of Prada’s international live event programmes, speakers are connected together on Prada’s Instagram to engage in real-time conversations,
The first Prada Possible Conversation will take place live on 14 April 2020 at 6pm CET, between Pamela Golbin, author, curator, and Artistic Director of Jacquard x Google Arts & Culture Residency, and Alexander Fury, fashion features director of AnOther Magazine and Men’s Critic of the Financial Times. Discussing the topic ‘Fashion in Times of Crises’, their dialogue will be broadcast via Prada’s Instagram.
True conversations involve many: each Prada Possible Conversation will allow the audience to pose questions to the participants, therefore becoming a wider discussion.
Each Prada Possible Conversation will also result in a donation from Prada to UNESCO, whose work during the COVID-19 pandemic focuses on the importance of culture, creativity, and education for over 1.5 billion students worldwide affected by school and university closure, as well as on a programme to increase international cooperation in science. Supporting their initiatives across the globe, this is a further demonstration of the vital exchange between fashion and society.
