Aims and Scope
We all wear clothes. We are all therefore invested, at some level, in the production and consumption of clothing. Clothing Cultures 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, 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.
