Abstract

In this presentation, we explore the interplay among the overlapping fields of clothing and textiles, fashion studies, and cultural studies in Korea and the U.S. We note that there are a number of productive tensions at play when considering these fields together: for example, industry profit-making motives versus everyday style and resistance, “fast fashion” versus sustainable fashion, material versus image- or brand-based priorities, and critical-theoretical versus practical needs for individuals and the industry alike.
