Call for Presentations
Fashion is a statement, a stylised form of expression, which displays and begins to define a person, a place, a class, a time, a religion, a culture, subcultures, and even a nation. This inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary conference seeks to explore the historical, social, economic, political, psychological and artistic phenomenon of fashion, a powerful component of contemporary culture. Fashion lies at the very heart of persons, their sense of identity and the communities in which they live. Individuals emerge as icons of beauty and style; cities are identified as centres of fashion; the business of fashion is a billions of dollar per annum global industry, employing millions of people. The project will assess the history and meanings of fashion; evaluate its expressions in politics, business, pop culture, the arts, consumer culture, and social media; determine its effect on gender, sexuality, class, race, age, nation and other sources of identity; and explore future directions and trends.
Building on the foundations of previous meetings, publications and collaborations, the conference will be structured around 5 main areas of focus. Each area will have the opportunity to enjoy specific as well as whole group sessions. Papers, presentations, demonstrations and workshops are invited.
René Gruau & Pampaloni along with OMEGA & Zinc Textile, Miami, USA
Pampaloni will host René Gruau from December 3rd, 2012 to February 15, 2013.
Like every year during Miami Art Basel, Pampaloni hosts an artist in its Miami showroom. This year, Pampaloni is thrilled to host René Gruau from December 3rd to February 15, 2013. Thanks to private collectors we were able to put together a vast selection of unprecedented oil on canvas, gouaches, lacquers and lithographs. Gruau admired Pampaloni’s collection and owned a number of their pieces. Gruau was Italian, like Pampaloni; he would express himself with simple lines, like Pampaloni and both were driven by aesthetic and sophistication more than anything else. Sylvie Nissen, worldwide exclusive agent of Gruau’s work, also fell in love with Pampaloni, which she represents at her Cannes gallery. The result of the Gruau and Pampaloni’ association is a harmonious world of Italian beauty where silver and art support and enhance each other to deliver the best of what Italian elegance can be; away from market trends. This exhibition is meaningful and obviously had to happen.
Among the original pieces will be the last work order of Gruau. Commissioned by OMEGA, the portrait of Cindy Crawford (OMEGA's ambassador) will be shown for the first time since being exhibited at the 1999 opening of the "Musée de la publicité" at the Louvre Museum in Paris. OMEGA naturally then wanted to be part of the event and support it.
In addition, Sylvie Nissen, co-author of "Gruau, Portraits of Men", recently published by Assouline, will also makes us the honor of being in Miami, co-hosting the exhibition, presenting and signing her new book during Miami Art Basel.
Finally, the Zinc Textile Company will also show its new fashion inspired fabric collection called "Runway", which consists of 12 exclusives images by legendary Gruau. This collection is intended to be revealed to the public during the next edition of Maison & Objets in Paris this coming January but it will be exceptionally previewed during our Miami event.

Fashion Designers A-Z
Defining designers of the 20th and 21st centuries and their most remarkable works
photo courtesy publishers
29 Nov 2012 - From Azzedine Alaïa, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and Coco Chanel, to Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood, a century's worth of fashion greats from the permanent collection of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology are celebrated in this limited-edition volume. Photographs of over 500 garments selected from the Museum's permanent collection illuminate each of the featured designers, while texts by the curators explain why each designer is important in fashion history and what is special about the individual pieces featured. In her introductory essay, director and chief curator Valerie Steele writes about the rise of the fashion museum, and the emergence of the fashion exhibition as a popular and controversial phenomenon; and both Steele and contributor Suzy Menkes provide a history of this museum’s role in the world of fashion scholarship and preservation.
Fashion Designers A–Z is available as a series of six Designer Editions. Each edition (a total of 11,000 copies) is bound in a fabric created by one of six designers—Akris, Etro, Stella McCartney, Missoni, Prada, and Diane von Furstenberg—and comes in a Plexiglas box. Crafted by hand at a bindery in the heart of Italy, and stamped with a unique number, every copy is an instant classic, and an addition to your fashion library that is truly one-of-a-kind.
Albert Kriemler’s racecar motif pattern for the Akris Edition of 2,000 copies was created in the spirit of the devil-may-care elegance of John Frankenheimer’s 1966 movie Grand Prix.
Paisley is practically synonymous with the Etro name—and the Paisley motifs selected by Veronica Etro for the Etro Edition of 2,000 numbered copies are classic examples.
The Stella McCartney Edition of 2,000 numbered copies is adorned with a Neon Abstract Print on cotton satin from her Summer 2013 collection—available in two different palettes.
For the covers of the Missoni Edition, limited to just 2,000 numbered copies, the Missoni family selected a colorful array of 20 different zigzag-striped knit from its vast archives. The fabrics exemplify the company's optimistic, playful approach to pattern since the 1970s.
For the Prada Edition of 2,000 numbered copies, Miuccia Prada selected four classic prints from previous collections and re-printed them on cotton: the feminine tiny “hearts,” the Baroque-inspired “bananas,” the abstract geometric “diamonds,” and a floral reissued for Prada from the 1960 Holliday & Brown archives.
Diane von Furstenberg
Printed on cotton canvas, the Signature Chain Link print selected by Diane von Furstenberg for the DVF Edition of 1,000 numbered copies epitomizes the designer's balance between retro glamour and modern chic.

Showroom for Fashion Designer Branka Donassy
Donassy Open Atelier, temporary exhibition space and shop, Zagreb, Croatia - 2012
photos : Miljenko Bernfest
The Donassy Open Atelier project created a temporary, flexible showroom whose purpose is to exhibit the work of the fashion designer Branka Donassy and other visiting artists. The existing storefront is in a historicist building, in a zone between Zagreb’s Upper and Lower Town. It has a barrel vault ceiling and is transformed with minimal budget and no building interventions. Architecture and fashion overlap, with the fashion design fabrication techniques completing the unique conceptual whole. The concept references exploration of avant-garde forms, construction and the meticulous nature of the artist’s work itself.
photos : Miljenko Bernfest
The basic element of spatial design here is an elastic translucent cloth tailored and sewn according to the principles of couture, with no additional construction, anchored into the existing structure just with bolts, in a dotted pattern, which in the end resulted in an autonomous voluminous structure. Thus the whole space is draped in an elastic membrane which is simultaneously a form making element as well as a system to accomplish a diffuse and uniformed lighting, thanks to fluorescent tubes installed between existing vaulted ceiling and the translucent membrane itself. The anchoring elements are at the same time hooks for exhibits. The clothes racks are flexible and mobile so as to ensure quick transformation of space when needed. The rectangular black rubber coated fabric surface on the façade frames the front glass door, covering the damaged existing façade and accentuating the entrance, being a clear link between two worlds, the interior and exterior one. The floor is finished in contrast with the translucent luminous interior membrane, using black painted OSB panels.

Critical Studies in Fashion & Beauty
Volume 2 Numbers 1 & 2: special issue on fashion and ethics Critical Studies in Fashion & Beauty focuses on issues of power, social positioning, ideologies and practices within the web of relationships between creators, producers, practitioners and end-users of fashion. This special double issue on fashion and ethics brings to the forefront some of the ethical controversies, raising the question of whether 'ethical fashion' is actually a contradiction in terms, as editor Efrat Tseëlon suggests in her editorial. Offering a critique of some of the fundamental assumptions, this issue seeks to expose the ideologies of ethical fashion, which often mask its status as a product that uses ethical credentials as a marketing ploy to relieve consumers' guilt. 22 Mar
