Design Culture Salon 11: How do Fashion cycles and design culture interact?

The Clore Centre: Room 55, The V&A
Cromwell Road, London , SW7 2RL, United Kingdom

Fashion dominates how design is understood and consumed, particularly through the media. At the same time, the ‘trend’ orientated fashion system appears to be oppositional to those seeking to pave alternative systems and cultures of consuming design.

So, how useful are the dynamics of fashion as a method of examining and understanding the role of design in contemporary culture? How can we compare the cycles of fashion and furniture design, for example? What can we learn from trend forecasters about design culture? What might account for the apparent separation of the academic study of cultures of fashion and design?
