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