Join an international cohort of academics and practitioners to discuss men’s style in the global context.⁠

About this Event:⁠
Over the past two decades men’s style has become an increasingly dynamic field. At the same time, the dominance of Western fashion capitals has been challenged by innovative menswear, street style, and high-end design emanating out of new centres of creative practice.⁠

This conference investigates men’s style in locales underrepresented in existing academic literature while exploring the connections between distant geographies (both today and in the past). Shifting notions of masculinity as expressed through clothing are also addressed.⁠

Notable Speakers Include⁠
Keynote ­– Dr Michael McMillan (University of Johannesburg, LCF)⁠
Screening and presentation – Vivek Vadoliya (artist and filmmaker)⁠
Dr Shaun Cole (Winchester School of Art)⁠
Dr Andy Reilly – Editor Critical Studies in Men’s Fashion (University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa)⁠
