Fashion Values: Cultures
Use storytelling to contribute to equitable, inclusive and diverse cultures in and through fashion.
Learn how to find and tell stories of the ingenuity and creativity of fashion in its many cultural forms.
You’ll hear from a range of global experts and be introduced to an exploration of style-fashion-dress – a system of concepts in the study of fashion first coined by writer and curator Carol Tulloch. You will look at cultural practices that nurture a pluralistic perspective, where fashion has many roles and meanings in everyday lives. Style-fashion-dress will help you to think about fashion’s relationship with sustainability and the potential for storytelling to celebrate fashion’s diversity and think beyond dominant unsustainable, consumption-led fashion models.
You’ll also use elements of design thinking to craft world-relevant skills to understand the big challenges facing the fashion system in a cultural context.
