|Our presentation and sessions panel|
It was a great experience to be surrounded by those with a keen interest in fashion theory and to be a part of the very vast ranging discussions on fashion. Some of the highlights from the sessions discussed the theory of deconstructive fashion, the historical narratives of Indian fashion garments, the evolution of South Africa’s fashion identity and the emerging 'homeless chic' fashion trend.
|The conference dinner & mingle|
Our presentation created a lot of buzz and excitingly opened up for a great debate which continued way beyond the day’s session.
Overall we would deem the conference a success as it was great to share our ideas and critiques with those keen to engage in intellectual debates but also to explore the theoretics of fashion from the different perspectives and disciplines held by those in attendance.
