Who : Fashion, Costume and Visual Cultures (FCVC) is the annual international, interdisciplinary conference of the FCVC Network, which aims to bring established, early career and emerging academics and practitioners together in order to explore key issues, theoretical debates, new methodologies and case studies exploring fashion and costume design and their distinct, yet simultaneously symbiotic relationship within contemporary visual cultures.

Regeneration & transformation (economic, social, cultural and representational) will form a key conference strand within FCVC2019, with keynote and roundtable presentations by international curators, designers, makers and academics.

Possible panel strands include, but are not limited to:

  • Clothing and identities
  • Cosplay and fan cultures
  • Performance art
  • Skin as costume
  • Stardom and celebrity
  • Fashion cities and street style
  • Screen and performance costuming
  • Designers, makers and retailers
  • Fashion, art, and museums
  • Transformation and lifestyle cultures
  • Film, TV, fashion and consumption
  • Fashion branding, editorial and advertising

Throughout the conference visits are planned to arts and cultural venues in and around Roubaix (including La Piscine – Musée d’Art et d’Industrie André Diligent). There will also be numerous opportunities for networking and special interest group meetings.

Please note : the conference will be held in English and French.
