Marga takes the cake
Friday September 9th 2005
One of the participating artists in Ladyshave Home Edition, Marga Weimans, has won the i-D Styling Award announced during the 4th edition of the annual ITS competition for graduate designers.
ITS –the acronym for International Talent Support- is an organisation that bridges the gap between fashion training and and the fashion industry and is supported by, amongst others, Diesel, Mini, YKK (the zipper makers) and the textile producer, Inego. And, naturally, by the renowned British i-D Magazine.

Marga's prize consists of coverage in i-D Magazine, publication of a photo shoot and bursary of 3000 pounds sterling.

This summer, Marga Weimans is working together with filmmaker Jasmina Feckovic – known for her documentary Mathilde Superpoes- on an installation that will premiere on 10 September during the Wereled van Witte de With Festival (part of the Rotterdam Festivals 2005). This new work is an off-site MAMA project on location at Arminius.

Rumour has it that the most recent stunning video work of Jasmina and Marga's fashion creations will be lit by lamplights and that a gospel choir will appear. The installation promises to bring a heightened meaning to Marga's silhouettes that will also be on display in MAMA and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen at that time.
