The Fashion Professorship aims to rethink the cracks in the fashion system and the role that fashion plays – and could potentially play – in relation to urgent social, cultural, environmental and political developments in contemporary society. We envision an alternative and more engaged future of fashion in which we do more justice to fashion’s human dimension. Through research, design and critical thinking, we analyse and develop alternative approaches, systems, vocabularies and strategies. In doing so, we aim to activate the power of fashion to reimagine future bodies, future materials and future makers to contribute to resilient futures and inclusive societies.
We are excited to announce that Danielle Bruggeman is an invited speaker at Rio Ethical Fashion 2020.
After a successful first edition in 2019, the second edition of Rio Ethical Fashion 2020 is going virtual.
Last year, Rio Ethical Fashion connected 600 people from academia, industry, NGOs, brands and producers around one single question: how to make fashion more ethical and sustainable?
This year's event will be broadcasted from October 30th to November 30th, a full month to watch all the on-demand features. The event will include panels with leading professionals in global fashion, talks, thematic discussions and network rooms, fashion films, complementary study packages and a sustainable and thorough immersion in fashion issues.
Danielle Bruggeman will be speaking in the 'cultural appropriation' panel, together with Monica Moison and Rodney William. She will reflect on dissolving the ego of fashion in relation to current debates on identity and cultural appropriation.
