Laura di Summa, William Patterson University: “Building a Philosophy of Fashion”

In this paper, I explore the importance and challenges of building a philosophy of fashion. In particular, I will analyze the role that fashion can play in refining the notion of performative identity and the overall contribution that fashion can bring to the burgeoning field of body aesthetics. I will also sketch what I take to be a philosophical definition of fashion and look at its broad ethical and aesthetic implications.
