Fashioning Theory: Fashion and Materialism

  • Parsons Paris France (map)

Fashioning Theory investigates established and innovative theoretical approaches to fashion in order to initiate a discussion about the state of fashion theory, its canon and possible new trajectories. The seminar consists of a series of lectures by affirmed international scholars who have played a seminal role in the establishment of the field of fashion studies and who will reflect on the contribution of specific theorists, specific systems of thoughts and approaches to theory in the study of the production, representation and consumption of fashion.

We will start on the 4th October 2017 with a lecture on Fashion and Materialism by Ulrich Lehmann, from the New School in New York, that will be followed by a response by Michele Spano from CENJ EHESS, Paris.
