Awkward gestures

Research output: Contribution to Specialist PublicationEditorial


A consideration of how irreverent approaches to fashion illustration can open a space for more critical approaches to the form - challenging idealised representations of the body, bringing a sense of 'humanness' to fashion or by reflecting on what our preoccupation with fashion says about human nature in the 21st Century. The article focussed on the work of Helen Bullock, Florence Shaw and Damien Florebert Cuypers and included interviews with all three in reference to the article topic. This article was commissioned by Varoom! for their politics themed issue.
