Fashion is an embodied practice that produces connections between the local and the global, the individual and the collective, modes of production and consumption, as well as aesthetics and identities. Like culture, fashion is shared, learned, patterned, and meaningful. In fashion anthropology, we study how human cultures are produced, performed, and transformed through appearance, dress, and fashion systems. I will present my particular approach to fashion anthropology using examples from research, teaching, public outreach, and creative scholarship produced over the past five years, and will conclude with a discussion of the future of fashion anthropology.
