We live in times of unprecedented, disruptive change and uncertainty and most people find it challenging to thrive in those circumstances. If ‘design thinking’ is the new black, then thinking like a fashion design may just be the next big thing! This talk takes the idea of design thinking and translates it into a series of very practical tips that you can employ yourself, every day to help you think more optimistically in times of uncertainty and ambiguity. Professor Suzi Vaughan has settled (for now) in Brisbane, Australia having studied, lived and worked in Europe and Asia. After graduating from St Martins School of Art in London with a Ba Hons in Fashion, she started her professional career as a fashion designer, later moving into fashion education. Since 2011 she has been part of the executive team of a large Australian university. With over thirty years’ experience of design practice and teaching, she has become an advocate for the power and potential of design thinking.

The final lecture by Professor Nead covers the quintessential traits of a fashionable young woman in the 19th Century: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/fashion-and-visual-culture-in-the-19th-century-the-girl-of-the-period By the second half of the nineteenth century it was believed that respectable young women of the middle classes were imitating the styles and manners of the demi-monde and were thus blurring the necessary visual distinctions between the pure and the fallen. Respectable women had been seduced by the discourse around fashion and had lost their subtle purity and become brash and vulgar. In France, James Tissot painted a series of pictures entitled The Women of Paris, depicting fashionable women in a number of different locations and settings and in England the worrying habits of 'The Girl of the Period' became one of the most pressing issues for social columnists and correspondence in the press. This lecture will examine the representation of these new types of fashionable women and the social implications of the visual confusion of respectable and non-respectable women in the public spaces of Paris and London. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College Website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/fashion-and-visual-culture-in-the-19th-century-the-girl-of-the-period Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

Titled "Fashion is a Beautiful Chaos," this is the first lecture of a three-part series introducing Polimoda's Master's in Fashion Brand Management. Here, our director Danilo Venturi unpacks the three major tipping points that have shifted today's industry — globalization, the internet and the downfall of ideologies — to decode how the brand manager remains relevant in a chaos-ridden society. The blurred distinction between culture and identity, he explains, coupled with a shifted perception of time and space, have caused chaos - and this, he argues, is the new order. Shot in Polimoda's main campus, Villa Favard, these lectures are part of a special BoF - The Business of Fashion media partnership launched in October 2017 to unlock one of fashion's most sought-after figures. ========================= More info about Polimoda Master's Course in Fashion Brand Management (The Deep Identity of a Luxury Fashion Business): http://www.polimoda.com/courses/fashion-brand-management/ Follow us on: Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Polimoda Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/polimodafirenze Twitter - https://twitter.com/polimodafirenze LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/polimoda Subscribe to our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/polimodatube

An examination of how fashion was used as a short hand for morality in the Victorian era: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/women-in-red Fashionable dress in the nineteenth century had a moral dimension. Introducing the theme of the morality and modernity of fashion, this lecture considers the visual representation of the fallen women, courtesan and prostitute in the arts of the period. It examines the symbolic language of clothes and the way that it was used to register a woman's fall from respectability to deviancy. Social and moral identities were of great importance in the new public spaces of the nineteenth-century city along with a need to be able to register identities immediately through visual signs. In this context visual images of women's dress and appearance were of great significance in embedding this moral language of clothing. This lecture will draw on medical and religious texts, on literature and on paintings and engravings to set out the relationship between fashion, modernity, art and morality.

Professor of Fashion History and Theory Caroline Evans will talk about fashion films—a genre of video documentation that has become an essential part of the contemporary fashion industry. The talk will look at some historical antecedents for fashion film today, and rebuts the idea that fashion film is purely the product of the digital age. Drawing on methods from media archaeology, it looks at a range of old and new fashion film to think how fashion history is a multi-layered construction in which past and present are interwoven in what Michel Foucault called "a history of the present". The talk is drawn from Caroline’s current collaborative research project "Archaeology of Fashion Film". The project is based at Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London) in collaboration with Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton). Caroline Evans is Professor of Fashion History and Theory at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. She is the author of The Mechanical Smile: Modernism and the First Fashion Shows in France and America, 1900-1929 (2013) and Fashion at the Edge: Spectacle, Modernity, and Deathliness (2003), among many other publications. Current research projects attend to the idea of "fashion gesture"; a media archaeological approach to fashion history via film; and an exploration of the relations between technologies of the body and of pattern-cutting.

Rococo prettiness meshed with this obsession with artifice, giving rise to the panniers, powder and periwigs of this most decadent of fashion centuries.

August 23, 2015, Getty Center Lecture by Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell Introductory remarks by Marcia Reed and Christina Aube Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell is an independent art historian specializing in fashion and textiles. She has worked as a curator, consultant, and educator for museums and universities around the world. Louis XIV recognized fashion's propaganda value as well as its economic importance, and he was deeply invested in establishing the technical and aesthetic superiority of France's clothing and textile industries. Through prints, fashion plates, and his own oft-reproduced image, he set the standard of elegant dress and deportment throughout Europe. Art historian Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell examines the Sun King's lasting contributions to French fashion as well as his own exquisite (and extravagant) taste. This lecture complements the exhibition "A Kingdom of Images: French Prints in the Age of Louis XIV, 1660–1715," organized in special collaboration with the Bibliothèque nationale de France and on view in the Getty Research Institute from June through September 2015.

Ward, Ph.D., is a rising philosopher who specializes in the intersection of fashion and art. She is a Professor of fashion media at the European Graduate School (EGS) where she teaches an intensive summer seminar. The focus of her work is visual culture as meta-language, specifically how fashion images serve as a site for the negotiation of desire. For Ward, fashion photography functions as an intersection of aesthetic, ethical and social values. As a popular but equally creative and often progressive media it crosses thresholds of both journalism and art. The result is a unique form of media that works to advance ideal, mythical and capitalist desires. Ward has a combination of academic and professional experience in the US and Europe. Her Ph.D. dissertation was entitled "The Vanishing Point: Decadence, Desire, Truth", receiving the Magna Cum Laude distinction at EGS. Ward also holds an MA in Art History, receiving Cum Laude distinction at the University of Florida.

What can fashionable ideas, blind faith, or pure fantasy possibly have to do with the scientific quest to understand the universe? Surely, theoretical physicists are immune to mere trends, dogmatic beliefs, or flights of fancy? In fact, acclaimed physicist and bestselling author Roger Penrose argues that researchers working at the extreme frontiers of physics are just as susceptible to these forces as anyone else. In this provocative book, he argues that fashion, faith, and fantasy, while sometimes productive and even essential in physics, may be leading today's researchers astray in three of the field's most important areas—string theory, quantum mechanics, and cosmology. Arguing that string theory has veered away from physical reality by positing six extra hidden dimensions, Penrose cautions that the fashionable nature of a theory can cloud our judgment of its plausibility. In the case of quantum mechanics, its stunning success in explaining the atomic universe has led to an uncritical faith that it must also apply to reasonably massive objects, and Penrose responds by suggesting possible changes in quantum theory. Turning to cosmology, he argues that most of the current fantastical ideas about the origins of the universe cannot be true, but that an even wilder reality may lie behind them. Finally, Penrose describes how fashion, faith, and fantasy have ironically also shaped his own work, from twistor theory, a possible alternative to string theory that is beginning to acquire a fashionable status, to "conformal cyclic cosmology," an idea so fantastic that it could be called "conformal crazy cosmology." The result is an important critique of some of the most significant developments in physics today from one of its most eminent figures. Roger Penrose, one the world's foremost theoretical physicists, has won numerous prizes, including the Albert Einstein Medal, for his fundamental contributions to general relativity and cosmology. He is the bestselling author, with Stephen Hawking, of The Nature of Space and Time (Princeton). Penrose's other books include Cycles of Time: An Extraordinary New View of the Universe and The Road to Reality: A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe (both Vintage). He is the Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics Emeritus at the University of Oxford and lives in Oxford, England.
