The production and dissemination of academic knowledge shouldn’t be for profit but for public good. Fashion Studies reinvents the corporate model of academic journals by making the latest academic research and creative work freely available to the scholars, policymakers and journalists who need it, and the public who ultimately funds it.
Fashion Studies is an exciting, interdisciplinary field that has managed to bridge social sciences and humanities research. We founded this journal because we feel that creative and arts-informed work should also be welcomed with open arms. We feel that research, in whatever form it takes, is a creative endeavour and we encourage makers to write critically and creatively, and scholars to engage in creative forms of dissemination in our online forum.
