Fashion is ubiquitous – from the moment we dress and use a series of cosmetics in the morning to the moment we cleanse our face and dress into our sleeping clothes in the evening, fashion and wellbeing choices are integral part of our everyday life. This means that fashion presents continuous and multi-layered sociological and psychological processes of perception, evaluation, and behaviour. Researchers are engaged in research on the complex process of making and perfecting cosmetics for skin and hair. We are also interested in understanding how the fashion experience embedded in day-to-day life impacts the psychological wellbeing and aesthetic experiences of consumers. Research under this theme is also concerned with questions of ethics and wellbeing with regard to industry workers. A key focus within this research theme is to ultimately promote a positive and ethical relationship between dress, body, society, and the self.
