Printing Fashion 2023


On Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th March 2023, the MA in Fashion Studies at The New School Parsons Paris will launch the fifth edition of the Festival ‘Printing Fashion.’An annual festival which creates a space for discussion for practitioners, critics, academics to explore the role and value of fashion media through the lens of printed and digital publications. This edition will host different roundtables discussing the concept of ‘Resistance’ by reflecting on the practices of criticism as resistance, the relationship between print and politics, the hidden figures of the magazine, printing and gender, and the resilient formats that confront the new challenges of the publishing industry.
