Fashion, Image and Identity

Rome, Italy | November 26, 2004

Why has fashion become so notorious in modern society?

On November 26, 2004, STI held its first Culture & Lifestyles Experts Meeting at the Jolly Hotel in Rome. University of Navarra Professor Ana Marta González presented a background paper and participants were invited to write a paper with their views.

This private event explored questions such as: Why has fashion become so notorious in modern society? Is fashion linked mainly to consumerism? Has fashion anything to do with social identity? What is the best way to preserve subjectivity in an objectifying world?
