Clothing & Communication

Around the world today, the clothes we wear – traditional costume, military uniforms, street fashion, haute-couture or prêt a porter – made by hand or mass-manufactured – are the result of appropriated styles and the constant evolution of meaning and diverse identities. Clothing, whether one-of-a-kind or mass-manufactured, whether it is conceived as a form of expression by the maker or whether it becomes a form of expression through shifting uses and contexts, is a form of communication that is too important to ignore.
