Geographies of Fashion and Style: A Symposium.

You are warmly invited to a symposium help in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol exploring the creative and contested geographies of fashion and style.
Research on fashion within geography has importantly problematized the labour geographies and post-colonial politics of the contemporary garment industry. More recently, geographers have begun to recognise the cultural and creative significance and power of fashion.
What is sometimes missing from Geography’s engagement with fashion is a conversation with fashion scholars and designers, who have insider knowledge of the industry and its practices. As such, this event brings together geographers, fashion scholars and designers to create a space of interdisciplinary conversation.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Registration fee is £5.
