Tailoring Suits, Shaping Bodies
Symposium & Roundtable

The symposium examines the return of tailoring as an emblematic and defining attribute of contemporary fashion design and reflects on how structured, fitted garments like the suit no longer only embody ideas of tradition, masculinity, and respectability, but are increasingly used to disrupt concepts of sex, gender, power, and conformity.

Noted fashion designers and fashion researchers will discuss on the role and future of tailoring in fashion with a particular attention to gender, identities and the body.

Nicola Brajato (fashion researcher, University of Antwerp)
Peter Do (fashion designer, New York City)
Daisy Knatchbull (founder of The Deck London, Savile Row tailoring house for women)
Jay McCauley Bowstead (author and fashion researcher, London) 

Roundtable Discussion with Grace Wales Bonner (head of Fashion at Angewandte), Nicola Brajato, Peter Do, Daisy Knatchbull, Jay McCauley Bowstead, and Rosalind McKever (curator, Victoria & Albert Museum London).

Moderated by Dr. Monica Titton.


Open Q & A from the audience will follow.
