We thank all of the readers, contributors, editorial board members, reviewers, and speakers who took the time to engage with the inaugural issue of Fashion Studies, and who helped us to celebrate the launch of Issue 2. We are in awe of the exceptional response our second issue received.

As we prepare for the launch of our third publication, we will continue to publish cutting-edge fashion research throughout the 2019-2020 period. Check us out here each month for new research in the realm of fashion studies and for the launch of Issue 2, Volume 2.  

We have also released our Call for Submissions for Issue 3, which will be published September 2020. If you are interested in being a part of the launch of our second issue, we ask that you read the Call for Submissions below. We look forward to hearing from you and to sharing your innovative work in our upcoming publications!


Issue 3

Fashion Studies is excited to announce our call for submissions for Issue 3! Our third issue will be published this September 2020, and we encourage you to submit your work. All submissions for Issue 3 must be submitted by October 30, 2019 to fashionstudies@ryerson.ca. 

Fashion Studies is in search of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary written and creative research that analyzes and offers original contributions to the field of fashion studies. Our journal is mixed-media focused and accepts a wide range of scholarly approaches: papers or creative work, as well as combinations of the two, are always welcome. We also invite collaborative work, interviews, and event reviews in traditional or mixed-media formats. We specifically invite the submission of creative formats, the research of graduate and emerging scholars, research focused on fashion history, and research on contemporary fashion.

We continue to advocate and offer a platform for research that is both critical of fashion studies and recognizes fashion’s nuanced history and continued potential as a tool for positive social change. Work that centres diverse voices and experiences in its exploration of dress, that engages with fashion across multiple fields, and that applies innovative methodological approaches to the field is encouraged.

To jump start your creative juices, we include this list of sample topics:

1. FASHION AND REPRESENTATION

2. FASHION, IDENTITY, AND THE BODY

3. CREATIVE APPROACHES TO FASHION STUDIES

4. REWORKING AND REMEDIATING FASHION HISTORY

5. FASHION AND the environment


Please see our submission guidelines for more details and information! For questions, please reach out to fashionstudies@ryerson.ca. We look forward to receiving your work!
