The database centers and amplifies the voices of those who have been racialized in fashion, illuminates under-examined histories, and addresses racism throughout the fashion system. We provide lessons and resources that diversify how we understand fashion, creating a roadmap for lasting change in the fashion system.
The Fashion and Race Database is an excellent tool to connect researchers, academics, curators, designers, creative agents, and the public, all united by the interest of reflecting on fashion from a critical, global, interconnected perspective and focused on the intersectionality between race, gender, and class inequalities. The platform has become one of my favorite spaces for the dissemination of knowledge as it brings together written and audiovisual products. It always keeps me informed through bibliographic updates by specific topics, presenting the information in an extremely comfortable and friendly format through its website and social networks.
