The Fabric of Cultures: Systems in the Making

Fabric of Cultures: Objects, Memory, Technology is a research and pedagogical lab that aims at connecting in new ways the relationship between producers and consumers as well as exploring the uses to which a clothing archive can be put for a learning community. The Internet has contributed enormously to changes in how fashion is thought, lived and consumed. More than ever before, and especially after the tragedy of Rana Plaza, consumers are more compelled to know what hands and labor conditions are behind our clothing. This also explains why we have established a practice lab for the class.

By thinking of fashion through objects, we would like to engage in conversation with both the general public and academia.
