Recent publications: Address and The Conversation


I am absolutely thrilled to share the news of some of my recent publications with you. I wrote an essay for the second issue of Address, the delicious independent journal for fashion criticism, all about the embodied relationship we have with the clothing we wear. I take on the old chestnut that we 'express ourselves' through clothing, arguing instead that the conversation that occurs between us and our clothes, between self and fabric is more nuanced, more felt and ultimately, more interesting that the flat reduction that it's an 'expression'. You can find out more about the issue here and order it online if there are no stockists nearby (I don't think we have any stockists in Australia, more's the shame.)

I have also recently joined the intimidatingly clever coterie of columnists (o hai alliteration) at Australian 'news and views' site The Conversation. My column is called 'Material Visions'- it's part of the newly launched Arts & Culture section, and in it I'll be writing about all things fashion-related. My last column was about wedding dresses and bikini bodies, and if there's ever anything you'd like me to explore, I'd love to hear from you! Alternatively, general feedback/ lavish praise are also always welcome. (Seriously, tho.)
