Dear All,

Deadline extended: Call for Host NWFC 2018




The fifth NWFashionConference (NWFC) is scheduled for the autumn of 2018. The NWFC Steering Committee is looking for a partner to host this next edition.

The NWFC was established to end the stubbornly persistent euro- and ethnocentric underpinnings of dominant fashion discourse and to construct alternative narratives. The NWFC stimulates critical reflection on fashion developments and histories.
