Maison JaJa Presents New Medea Collection S/S19, RECAP
Maison JaJa is a performance fashion house in the form of a pop-up store. The purpose of Maison JaJa is to bring back dowry making processes in relation to the customer’s personal needs and histories. New Medea is a collection of handbags sparked by eleven interviews with elderly Greek women and men on the dowry exchange traditions of their regions in Greece. During FLAM VIII, the Maison JaJa pop-up will be on view, hosted by a selection of artists during opening hours.
