This fall, the Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA) has a new minor program called ‘Modestudies’! In contrary to other fashion studies, within this minor program, fashion studies have a more academical base in the Netherlands. But what are fashion studies and what is the status of fashion studies in the Netherlands? To welcome the minor program, the UvA organizes this symposium ‘Fashion Studies, Fashion Statements: Een Modeminor aan de UvA’. During the symposium, MAFB’s very own Marian Duff is invited as a speaker to talk about the exposition Fashion Statements that she curated. Also, several experts such as fashion journalist Bergje Lampe and costume historican Marieke de Winkel will share their vision about fashion studies and the future of these kind of studies.
September 4 | 1 PM - 4:45 PM | Auditorium Amsterdam Museum
Please note that the symposium will be in Dutch.
