Fashions and Embodiment

The Fashions and Embodiment Workshop invites participants to explore the relationship between fashion and movement through the acts of wearing and repairing. Using existing garments, the workshop will activate the tacit knowledge we each employ in the daily act of dressing and tending to our clothes. This practice-led approach aims to draw attention to the very complex reality of fashion production.

Creases, Crumples, and Folds

My doctoral research examined the embodied experience of wearing shoes and how the effects of wearing upon the shoe, the marks of use and wear, come to embody experience. Rather than drawing on a social science methodology, a historical/humanities methodology, or archival or image based research, the research utilized processes of wearing, performance and photography to examine attachment to and with our clothes.
