Just back from New York City is CMCI fashion specialist Dr Joanne Entwistle. Jo is on the advisory committee for their Museum@FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology)’s forthcoming exhibition “The Body: Fashion and Physique”.
The exhibition will look at how fashion has influenced how we see the body. Jo was in NYC to attend the first committee meeting and was also filmed for the exhibition film and museum website (see our picture). She’ll also be editing a special issue of Fashion Theory with the museum.
The exhibition will take place in New York from December 2017 to June 2018. More news when we have it.
Joanne Entwistle is Reader in in Culture and Creative Industries at CMCI.
