Does fashion create links?

Controversy 15 Amphi 5 July 6, 2024 15:30 - 16:00

Overview

On 14 March this year, the French National Assembly unanimously voted in favour of a far-reaching law governing fast fashion. Fashion can therefore be the source of a remarkable but ephemeral wave of reconciliation…

Fashion is not just about clothes. For example, interior design and decoration raise similar economic (sometimes with a hint of protectionism) and environmental issues.

It is also possible to take a more sociological view of fashion. By forging cultural identities, doesn’t it reinforce communitarianism? Can the beauty standards and stereotypes conveyed by fashion marginalise certain individuals?

Aren’t social inequalities reinforced by differential access to quality products? What impact do the prescribers of luxury brands have on the feeling of exclusion? Don’t the costs of ‘being fashionable’ reinforce social inequalities?

In short, does fashion create links or divides?
