Thinkings: On fashion disconnect

“Fashion’s current feminist question is an intersectional one - when a rich, white woman buys a t-shirt with a feminist slogan on it, but that t-shirt was made by an underpaid Bangladeshi woman working in a factory like Rhana Plaza, it cannot possibly be a feminist act...the physical and geographical distance between where clothes are produced and, and where they’re presented, exacerbates the disconnect.” 

- ‘How did we get here?’ journalist Bri Lee (of Hot Chicks with Big Brains) interviews Clare Press for the Arts Centre Gold Coast newspaper supplement promoting Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast (November 25 - February 18). Clare Press will appear at the Arts Centre Gold Coast talking about her book Wardrobe Crisis with author/editor Alison Kubler and “how we make, sell, and market clothes” on Saturday November 25, 2017, from 1:30pm to 2:30pm.
