Aims & Scope


Film, Fashion & Consumption is a peer-reviewed journal designed to provide an arena for the presentation of research and practice-based writing within and between the fields of film, fashion, design, history and art history. The journal aims to unite and enlarge a community of researchers and practitioners in these fields, whilst also introducing a wider audience to new work, particularly to interdisciplinary research that looks at the intersections between film, fashion and consumption.
