Abstract

This research project explores the controversial nature of the fashion industry and its role in perpetuating problematic social discourses in culture. Examines the role of cultural appropriation in fashion designs, racism in the industry, and makes links to trends and fast fashion. Argues that fashion both influences and is influenced by culture, and that this is a culture that reinforces social hierarchies and divisions. Also argues that this culture is a barrier to social change.
