Fashion is one of the most accessible and immediate forms of visual art – and like art, its deeper meanings are worthy of exploration. This Seminar will demonstrate that fashion is more than a mere reflection of its time, highlighting its inextricable links to cultural, social, and technological changes. These concepts will be revealed through an examination of fashion trendsetters – including important clients and designers – as well as the cycles of the trends themselves. (With images.)
