To start a professional and scholarly conversation on fashion spaces, the symposium Fashion Spaces in Norwegian Context: Rom på moten took place at Kristiania College University, Oslo, Norway, on October 17, 2018.
The results of the symposium have manifested in a printed publication in collaboration with Frame Publishers, the Netherlands: Fashion Spaces/A Theoretical View, a book with academic and professional content while having the appearance of a contemporary fashion magazine.
The content of the book is created by students of the Retail Design bachelor’s program, School of Arts, Design, and Media, Kristiania University College, Norway, and the exchange students from abroad. The project was run within courses of Brandscapes and Trend Analyses& Forecasting through the interaction with an international publisher and the emerging new Norwegian fashion retail industry. The objective was to provide students with early experience of innovation and entrepreneurship.
The book Fashion Spaces/A Theoretical View, edited by professor Vésma Kontere McQuillan, is an attempt to create a “state of–the–art” textbook for fashion spaces in a retail design context. The book explores, researches, and defines fashion spaces as an emerging area of research within the fashion and retail design by developing an innovative practice-near, applied approach to academic teaching and research.
The second edition of the symposium Fashion Spaces/The Pioneers will present the participants of the project and the content of the book. The book release itself is planned in Europe on February 20, 2020, and in US/Asia on April 21, 2020.
The contributors to the symposium will present the process of rethinking the theoretical model of fashion spaces. The presented case studies will show how the proposed conceptual model can enrich retail design in praxis.
The symposium Fashion Spaces/The Pioneers will take place at SALT, Langkaia 1, Oslo,
on October 16, 2019, 15h00-18h00.
