We are pleased to announce the publication of the latest issue of About Performance, which was co-edited by Dr. Rosie Findlay (Course Leader, MA Fashion Cultures) and Dr. Amanda Card (University of Sydney). The issue has the theme ‘Fashioning Performance/ Performing Dress’, and it features work considering a wide range of intersections between fashion, dress and performance, from Indian couture to theatrical costume to everyday dress. 

Notably, one of the works was co-authored by Rosie with a former student, Natalia Romagosa (BA (Hons) Fashion Journalism 2016). Titled ‘Sartorial Remembrance: Exploring the Weave Between Costume, Memory and the Performing Self’, the article develops work Natalia originally researched for the Cultural and Historical Studies dissertation, which Rosie supervised.The issue is now available online, as digital copies or in print HERE
