Rethinking Fashion Globalization
Rethinking Fashion Globalization is a timely call to rewrite the fashion system and push back against Eurocentric dominance within fashion histories by presenting new models, approaches and understandings of fashion from critical thinkers at the forefront of decolonial fashion discourse. This edited collection draws together original, diverse, and richly reflective critiques of the fashion system from both established and emerging fashion scholars, researchers and creative practitioners. Chapters straddle current calls for decolonization and inclusion, as well as reflections on de-westernization, post-colonialism, sustainability, transnationalism, national identities, social activism, global fashion narratives, diversity, and more. The volume is divided into three key themes, ‘Disruptions in Time and Space’, ‘Nationalism and Transnationalism’ and ‘Global Design Practices’. These themes re-map fashion’s origins, practices and futures, to present alternatives for reclaiming and rethinking fashion globalization in the 21st century.
