Who-What-How ? #1 Jean-Paul Lespagnard
WHO ARE YOU? • WHAT DO YOU DO? • HOW DO YOU DO IT?
It’s a moment to share and talk about extraordinary people and initiative. No PowerPoint, just us together filling the EXTRA-ORDINAIRE AGORA with our voices. And then a drink.
To launch the talks, we welcomed our founder Jean-Paul Lespagnard, who shared his journey through fashion design with participants. For those of you who do not know Jean-Paul: Jean-Paul Lespagnard is a fashion designer, a costume designer for theatre and dance and a visual artist. He combines a great sense of fashion with a fascination for high and low art and for popular culture in all its shapes and forms. Jean-Paul studied visual arts and fashion design in Liège (Belgium) and Luxembourg. He was a collaborator of Anna Sui (New York) for two collections and was an assistant to Annemie Verbeke (Brussels). He has created the costumes for several theatre and dance productions and is a regular collaborator of choreographer like Meg Stuart, Damien Jalet and Boris Charmatz.
