Does international fashion design still show the influence of culture and socio-ethnology--that is, elements of local significance--or is it, like so many other spheres, now dominated by global currents? The Fashion Generation seeks answers to these questions in the prototypes and designs of graduates of design schools all over the world, and thereby also presents a fascinating parade of new talent and trends. It includes work from the renowned fashion schools of London, New York and Antwerp as well as designs created by representatives of the largely unknown avant-garde from Africa, Eastern Europe, Australia/Oceania, South America and Asia. The contributing authors also discuss new, interactive forms of presentation that could well replace traditional ideas about clothing display in museum settings.
