Fashion Design Practice and Research in Latin America

6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Latin American Fashion roundtable

The first roundtable as part of this series aims to initiate a conversation on the practice and research of fashion design in Latin America. The roundtable will encompass Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and approach different case studies exploring issues of practice, mediation and consumption of fashion as they relate to social, political and economic realities in this diverse and multicultural region. The five case studies from Peru, Mexico and Cuba will introduce different approaches in the study of fashion systems in these areas.

Roundtable participants include: Susana Aguirre (Peru), Carmen Artigas (México), María A. Cabrera (Cuba), and Lucia Cuba (Peru).

This event is possible thanks to the support of the MA in Fashion Studies at Parsons the New School of Art and Design History and Theory. For more information about the event please contact: luciacuba@luciacuba. com
