The art of fashion

artiste(s): Lecture and exhibition by Mareunrol’s

The emerging fashion brand MAREUNROL'S, based in Riga (Latvia), was established in 2005 by designers Marite Mastina-Peterkopa and Rolands Peterkops. They present 2 fashion collections per year and work in different fields of art, creating set designs and fashion installations, directing short movies, and designing costumes for operas and theatre performances.

MAREUNROL'S collections are concept based. Their designs are usually accompanied by specially designed sets, scenography, video projections, installations, photography, i.e. any creative outputs that help to communicate their story. Both designers constantly look for new mediums and ways of presenting fashion, and search for new art disciplines that could be incorporated into the world of fashion design. This is why at MAREUNROL'S shows the work might seem to be avant-garde, but in reality it is ready-to-wear fashion
. (

Winners of the 24th Festival of Photography and Fashion in Hyères 2009, they were the first in the history of the festival to win two main awards at once (Grand Prix L'Oréal and 1,2,3 award). MAREUNROL'S participated in many fashion and art events worldwide such as the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space (Czech Republic, 2011), Arnhem Fashion Biennial (Netherlands, 2009 and 2013 ), and BARCELONA 080 (Spain, 2009). German magazine Opernwelt, in its annual critics poll, has selected MAREUNROL'S costume design for the opera Eugene Onegin as one of the best artistic achievements in 2012. Their work has been published broadly, a.o. in Pattern: 100 designers, 10 curators (Phaidon, 2013) and their costume designs have been selected for the group exhibition ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion, which has been travelling to different museums around the world (La Gaïté Lyrique, Paris, France; Benaki Museum, Athens, Greece; Centraalmuseum, Utrecht, Netherlands).

The talk by MAREUNROL'S at Casino Luxembourg will be accompanied by an exhibition presenting the autumn/winter collection 2014 and video projections. The Embassy of the Republic of Latvia to Belgium and Luxembourg cordially invites for a drink after the talk.
