On References, Biases, and the Intersection of Fashion and Culture with Joseph Maglieri
January 11, 2021
On today’s episode of Biased, José and Joseph Maglieri discuss references at the intersection of fashion and culture, the importance of giving credit, the connection between social sciences and fashion, the need to de-center references, biases, and of course, Diet Prada.
In this episode, Joseph and I dive deep into references and their weight in today’s fashion landscape. We discuss the difference between a good and well-developed reference and simple copy-catting, the connection between fashion and culture, and the endless cycle of some work informing culture and others being informed by it. We also discuss the importance of giving credit to minorities and the cultures who have, for so long, informed fashion with no credit or recognition.
