Fashion Remains: Rethinking Ephemera in the Archive
Fashion ephemera-from catalogues and invitations to press releases-have long been lost sight of by the fashion industry and fashion academics. This book redresses the balance, putting these objects centre stage and specializing in the wider creative practice of latest fashion designers, photographers, graphic designers, make-up artists, and plenty of more. Fashion ephemera are thought to be not as disposable promotional devices, but as windows into hidden networks of collaboration and value creation within the fashion system.
Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Fashion Remains explores the unseen and privately circulated fashion ephemera produced by these days’s most prominent international fashion designers such as Margiela, Yamamoto, and Raf Simons. Showcasing a unique archive of materials, it specializes in Antwerp’s avant-garde fashion scene and reveals the possibility of these ephemeral objects to evoke and call into question material and immaterial knowledge concerning the fashion industry’s actors, practices and ideologies.
