Fashion, Hacked: Liberation Through Participation
Feb 28, 2013, 5:30pm | Room 9206-9207
How is our clothing a purveyor of our political ideologies and related social values? Fashion is embedded in global and local markets and implicated in cultural change, sexual codes, and social progress. As the fashion industry takes account of these issues, in what ways might it respond? How, for instance, might new technologies in the fashion industry improve the industry’s environmental impact? Join panelists from a variety of disciplines as they discuss the ways that fashion influences the global economy, and expresses political, religious and ethical choices.
