The cultural value of fashion in an interdisciplinary dialogue of the languages of contemporary art and culture.
In their countless interpretations, fashion, art, architecture, writing, and human sciences were the focus of debates and experimentation at the conference of the International Foundation of Fashion Technology Institutes held in Florence in May 2015. This volume bears witness to the event, divided into six areas of inquiry, represented and linked together by twenty-six installations and performances: the result is a selection of the very best ideas and projects brought to Polimoda from all over the world. Polimoda is the International Institute of Fashion Design and Marketing in Florence, Italy. Linda Loppa is an internationally renowned authority in fashion education and Polimoda’s Advisor for Strategy and Vision.
