Translating Fashion: Eastern Europe, Western Europe, 1910-2010

Principal Investigator: Djurdja Bartlett
College: London College of Fashion

Today's fashion in Eastern Europe and Russia is contextualised within the significant political, economic and social changes brought about by the collapse of socialism and the globalisation of information and commerce. New markets, consumerist practices, modes of production and imagery all inform the changed relationship between Eastern Europe and the West, which the research explores through its textual and visual evidence.
