Fashion Practice: Design, Creative Process and the Fashion Industry is the first peer-reviewed academic journal to cover the full range of contemporary design and production within the context of the fashion industry. Design processes and new technologies fuel the most vibrant areas of fashion practice and commerce today, yet have been under-represented in scholarship.
Fashion Practice provides a much-needed forum for topics ranging from design theory to the impact of technology, economics and industry developments on fashion practice. Interdisciplinary and wide ranging, Fashion Practice addresses the entire business of fashion, including:
• innovation in fashion design and practice
• sustainability and ethics within the industry
• materials, design, concepts and process
• diverse communities within fashion research
• “smart” textiles and digital fashion
• application of technologies including micro- and nano-technologies within the fashion context
• fashion consumption and production from retail/e-tail to performance fashion
• new developments in fashion and clothing business and retail practices
Fashion Practice was established in 2009, providing a platform for debate for those practicing within fashion as academics, industry professionals, and educators. The necessity for the fashion system to change in the face of current global challenges, not least the climate emergency, has become an imperative; fashion and sustainability is a major topic for research and action on all levels – individual, educational, institutional and industrial, and is increasingly reflected in the journal’s articles. Themed/special issues are regularly featured, initiated by the editors, commissioned, or developed from proposals received from guest editors working in liaison with the main editors.
