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.
On Wednesday December 9, Danielle Bruggeman will participate in an online round table discussion on 'sensory fashion', as part of the Fashion Design and Visual Arts Hub at London College of Fashion.
This will be a round table discussion with Sara Chong Kwan, Luke Stevens and Mila Burcikova (Centre for Sustainable Fashion), and with Otto von Busch (Parsons). The round-table will discuss emerging research and practice that prioritises sensory engagement with clothing.
This is part of the seminar sessions on 'Sensory Fashion: Critical Issues in Fashion Research', which explore sensorial approaches to researching the design, production, consumption and performance of fashion; and the embodied, social, cultural and political implications of this.
