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.

Conferences are high quality, innovative, dynamic, flexible and multicultural. Participation from diverse practitioners as well as academics and curators is not just welcome, but indispensable.

The NWFC encourages hosts from anywhere in the world.  Hosts may be university departments, museums, fashion or art schools, fashion events, fashion publications or fashion film festivals.

The conference is developed in partnership with the NWFC Steering Committee. Background, guidelines, application form and timeframe are attached and may also be found on the website.

If you are interested in hosting the 5th edition of the NWFC, please fill in the attached form and  return it to the Steering Committee Chairperson, Angela Jansen ( Applications will be reviewed by the Steering Committee.

Deadline for submission of forms: 1 September 2017.
