The exhibition The Future of Fashion is Now at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Netherlands aimed to bring together fashion designers and artists especially those with non-western backgrounds and designers from outlying regions of Europe where there was little or no fashion tradition until very recently, who are actively looking to modernize the fashion system. With a selection of eighty works from these designers, the exhibition will showcase a new young generation of designers as the future of fashion. The Future of Fashion is Now was a follow-up of the exhibition The Art of Fashion in 2009. Also, this exhibition was initiated by the fashion programme of the Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge and guest curator José Teunissen (Head of Modelectoraat ArtEZ).
