We are very glad that so many researchers and practitioners from different fields, disciplines and countries joined the event and started conversations on how to move forward in fashion.
It was a great pleasure to share thoughts, visions, designs, concepts and theoretical ideas on how to activate the power of fashion to contribute to resilient futures and equitable societies.
For us, this is just the start of these conversations and we would love to continue our collaboration with you in the (near) future to further develop this research community with like-minded people to realize our shared visions.

A selection of contributions will be published in a special edition of the new online ArtEZ journal, which will be released in January 2019. In-depth interviews with the keynote speakers by our students of the ArtEZ MA Fashion Strategy will be part of the new ArtEZ Journal.
During the Colloquium, we also hosted a live radio show, called ‘Loose Fit: Inclusive Exclusive Fashion’, with conversations about inclusivity, diversity and a more embodied way of doing, thinking and seeing fashion. You can listen to the radio show on the website of JajajaNeeneenee.
We would love to get your feedback on the Fashion Colloquium, and the role of this event – and especially the conversations that we started within this community – in terms of research, education and the future of fashion. Please click on this link to fill in the feedback questionnaire: Questionnaire Fashion Colloquium This will take approximately 5 minutes. We would greatly appreciate to hear your thoughts and reflections.
The ArtEZ Fashion Professorship will be further developing its research programme focused on the three main themes presented in the publication Dissolving the Ego of Fashion (2018):
(1) the emerging discourse of critical fashion practitioners, developing alternative approaches to the fashion system;
(2) the importance’s of fashion’s human dimension, identity, subjectivity and embodiment – also in relation to current debates on sustainability and circularity;
(3) matter and materiality, ‘living matter’, the affective relationship between human beings and material objects.
We would like to invite you to follow and engage in the activities of the Fashion Professorship. Please see:http://modelectoraat.artez.nl/. We would love to keep you informed about the next steps of the Fashion Professorship.
We are looking forward to staying in touch,
On behalf of the conference organisers,
