How to wear utopia: a dress manual for the socialist future

College: London College of Fashion
Supervisors: Professor Lucy Orta, Dr Agnes Rocamora, Dr Djurdja Bartlett


The aim of the research is to explore an alternative role for clothing in society, rejecting the fashion system, to propose instead a “dress formula” that would reflect utopian values.

The original approach of this research lies in using clothing as a critical and speculative tool to devise an alternative society to the one in which we live. By making utopia a method in design towards an alternative society, design becomes a tool for questioning and debating ethical and social issues. This transdisciplinary research will combine theoretical and practice-based methodologies to define the theoretical criteria for imagining future jobs.
