Aims & Scope

 

We all wear clothes. We are all therefore invested at some level in the production and consumption of clothing. This journal intends to embrace issues and themes that are both universal and personal, addressing (and dressing) us all. Increasingly, as we all become accomplished semioticians, clothing becomes the key signifier in determining social interaction and behaviour, and sartorial norms dictate socio-cultural appropriateness. Following the rise of fashion theory, on an everyday level, we all understand that our clothes ‘say' something about us, about our times, nation and system of values. Yet clothing is not fashion; clothing is a term derivative from ‘cloth', to cover the body, whereas fashion alludes to the glamorous, the ephemeral and the avant garde. We wear clothes, but imagine fashion – an unattainable ideal.

This double-blind peer-reviewed journal also offers a forum for the discussion of textiles and their significance in the production and consumption of clothing and thus solicits papers from textile historians, designers and design professionals.
