Virtual Event

Online via Zoom.

As we slowly make our way out of the global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, attention to fashion allows us to rediscover meaning and pleasure in the world. Did fashion disappear when we were locked down and couldn’t show it off? Are sweatpants the new work clothes? Will we ever wear a bra again? These are some of the questions that concerned us, and fashion designers, throughout the pandemic. Fashion is here to stay, but how will it change?

This talk will move us from the global to the personal, and from the past to the future, to explore four key areas of change in fashion: space, display, body, and technology. Join us as we imagine together what the future holds for us.
