What is Fashion Research?

Fashion Research is investigating fashion as a social, economic, political and ideological system that teaches us about the culture that creates, and is created by, this system. We examine clothing and other adornments as cultural artifacts that speak (often ambiguous) volumes about the circumstances of their conception, production, acquisition, use and assemblage. Fashion Research is seeking to understand why, of all the practically infinite possibilities which might conceivably be available to us, we chose to wear what we wear. And why others make different choices. And what those choices might suggest about who we are, what we believe, and how we interact with the world around us.
