This blog aims to bring fashion theory to the forefront among the discursive texts concerning fashion. Its goal is to foster scholarly research as well as bring awareness of theory and philosophy to the fashion images we see everywhere. The particular focus will be on the fashionable form or fashion object. Special attention will be placed on fashion ads, clothing design, and fashion shows – the spaces, places, and faces of fashionable objects can include photography, museum exhibitions, magazine spreads, websites, models, and the general public.
