This event is being held in partnership with "Deepen the Conversation"- part of Fashion Week at the State Library Queensland-
Deepen the Conversation: Fashion and cultural identity
is an expression of cultural identity. In a multicultural society like
Australia, styles are adapted and adopted across ethnic groups and into
the mainstream. In the process of settlement, some new residents feel
pressured to assimilate whilst others hold onto their traditional dress
more tightly. What is the place of traditional dress in new lands, and
what does it mean to give it up?
Join Nadia Buick in
conversation with a panel of experts as they share personal stories and
explore fashion as a cultural identity and how it influences what we
consider to be fashion in Australia and globally.
Presented by the Romero Centre and SLQ, as part of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival
