Fashion: Conform or Resist

WHEN:

On 15th October 2016 only
Paid Entry (£40.00)

WHERE:

London College of Fashion, 20 John Princes Street, London, W1G 0BJ

WHAT:

Following on from the Costume Society summer conference, which considered the theme of 'Fashion and Democracy?, this study day examines the contradictory role fashion can play. Sometimes it can be a mechanism for rebellion and resistance and on other occasions a means for conformity. For example, young people have voiced their rebellion against their parents and society through their clothing, political groups have created individual styles to demonstrate their disquiet against controlling governments and fashion designers have pushed the boundaries of conventional dress through their designs. At the same time society has followed conventional styles of dress and individuals have conformed to wearing uniforms of their military or occupational roles or religious order.

Keynote Speaker: Djurdja Bartlett, Reader in Histories and Cultures of Fashion London College of Fashion
