Twentieth century and contemporary fashion, art, photography and film.
I have a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship (Oct 2007-Sept 2010) to research a book on the history of early fashion shows in Paris and New York, c.1900-1929. Situating the fashion show in the context of modernism, my research links the first fashion shows to the development of early cinema and new forms of popular theatre. Drawing equally on economic, cultural and intellectual history, it explores the way modernist production was 'pictured' in fashion marketing, linking fashion modelling to Taylorism and Fordist aesthetics in the early Twentieth century.
Two strands from this research that I plan to develop further in other forms or media are: pattern-making and repetition; and the relationship of fashion to stage magic.
In association with this project, I am working on a film programme for 2010 with the FFF (Fashion in Film Festival, see FashioninFilm.com) where I also sit on the advisory board.
