The Fashion Media: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow conference brought together the leading minds and voices in fashion research and practice to explore and debate the key issues facing fashion imagery and communications today and consider them in relation to historical and future media cultures. Programmed by Dr. Djurdja Bartlett and Professor Penny Martin of London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, and staged at the college's Oxford Circus campus over two days, the conference was structured around a series of provocative, 20-minute 'position' papers. These focused on themes such as questions of national identity in historic magazine culture; masculinity and criminality in male dress; ethnicity and propriety in fashion representation; quality control in digital innovations and the future of online fashion. Recognizing the burgeoning research interest in fashion media among undergraduate and postgraduate students, there was also a Pecha Kucha session for postgraduate students and early career researchers to present their projects.
