Omega Workshop brings together projects by artists, designers, and activists rethinking the language of clothing to effect social, political, and environmental change. Since the birth of fashion, counter-fashion—the practice of dressing to signal political solidarity—has been a site for critical intervention and utopian experimentation. Omega Workshop is both a survey of contemporary experiments in revolutionary and utopian dress, and a laboratory for exploring alternatives to the current fashion system.
