Fashion, Masculinity & Stigma in Contemporary Britain

WHEN:

Wed 5th October 2016
Booking Required

WHERE:

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

WHAT:

"Charlie Athill is a researcher and lecturer in Cultural and Historical Studies at LCF. As part of this conversation, Charlie will explore attitudes in the United Kingdom towards male adornment in dress, grooming and lifestyle choices, and in relation to concepts and accusations of pretentiousness. Taking the recent and broadly defined phenomenon, the ‘hipster’, as a case study, he will analyse discourse in the last decade from a range of media that feature hipsterism. Nearly all media coverage of hipsters has focused on men, reflecting gendered cultural prejudices about a style that requires a certain level of cultivation. Charlie will consider how and why hipsterism is, overall, represented pejoratively and how parody conveys a cultural distaste, which, he contends, masks anxieties about the subversion of norms relating to gender and class."
