'Teaching Fashion Studies' Chapter
The chapter ‘Trend Forecasting, Taste and the Production of Fashion’, published in ‘Teaching Fashion Studies’ (Kent, 2018) was written in collaboration with Jay McCauley Bowstead (London College of Fashion). It sets out a curriculum project that we co-developed and trialled with a group of MA Fashion students at Goldsmiths University. More details by Bloomsbury about the book can be found through this link and also below.

Teaching Fashion Studies is the definitive resource for instructors of fashion at the undergraduate level and beyond. The first of its kind, it offers extensive, practical support for both seasoned instructors and those at the start of an academic career, in addition to interdisciplinary educators looking to integrate fashion into their classes.
Informed by the latest research in the field and written by an international team of experts, Teaching Fashion Studies equips educators with a diverse collection of exercises, assignments, and pedagogical reflections on teaching fashion across disciplines. Each chapter offers an assignment, with guidance on how to effectively implement it in the classroom, as well as reflections on pedagogical strategies and student learning outcomes.
Facilitating the integration of practice and theory in the classroom, topics include: the business of fashion; the media and popular culture; ethics and sustainability; globalization; history; identity; trend forecasting; and fashion design.
