‘The Fashion Body as Memento Mori’ by Christopher Breward


I had earlier posted about SHOWstudio‘s film project The Fashion Body and only realised later that this project has a essay accompaniment to complement the film segment. These essays have no relation to the films showcased. They are purely for knowledge and ‘to spark debate in their own right’. Interesting and innovative concept if you ask me and I’m all for it. Who would have thought that fashion could be portrayed as something more intellectual? The first essay is ‘The Fashion Body as Memento Mori’ by Christopher Breward who is a fashion historian (I didn’t know they existed). This is really heavy reading. Click HERE to read! Kudos once again to Nick Knight and co.
