Research Workshop: Fashion Design Methodology at Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås, Sweden

Written by:


At the Swedish School of Textiles researchers and research students in the artistic research program Fashion Design Methodology explore new methods, techniques, definitions and models in the art of dress and fashion design. As an aesthetic research program in dress it concerns the fundamental relationship between form and material, between technique and expression. Thus it concerns the development of foundational concepts and theoretical propositions in the art of dress and fashion design in and for itself, and not the theoretical development about dress and fashion.

Herby we welcome researchers and research students in the art of dress and fashion design to a 2- day workshop, May 22nd-23rd, 2012, to explore experimental artistic research in dress and fashion design. The aim is to present and discuss ontological, logical and epistemological research in the art and design of dress, fashion design, wearable art, costume design etc. The number of participants is limited to 30 participants and the number of presentations is limited to 15. Presentations will be selected based on the application (pls see below).

Time: The workshop starts with lunch at 12:00pm, May 22nd and ends at 5.00 pm, May 23rd.
Cost: the workshop is free of charge, includes lunch both days and dinner on the 23rd.
Registration: Registration should include a 1-page PDF, including a150-word and visual presentation of your research work as well as name, position, affiliation and contacts.

Apply and register by email before April 15th to:
