Fetishism in Fashion – Passionate Relationships

The world’s leading trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort has taken on the monumental task of looking at fetishism in fashion, design and art today. In “Fetishism in Fashion” she also forecasts tomorrow’s fetishistic trends and styles.

Lidewij Edelkoort on Fetishism in Fashion: “As a devotee of clothing and textiles in particular; I decided to analyze and dissect our obsession with fashion by dedicating a theme to the phenomenon of fetishism. An analysis of our desire to know and express ourselves; from covering and veiling to the most eccentric extremes which the desire for beauty can lead to. I wanted to look for the strong links which exist between an item of clothing and the wearer; the passion which can be caused by a pair of shoes or the emotional experience which the tactility of a textile can give us.”

Published to accompany M°BA 2013, Fashion Biennale Arnhem, that was held this summer, this book includes visually-rich – and sometimes shocking – photography and essays by established authors discussing art, clothing, design, textiles, food and beauty, this in-depth publication sheds new light on the fetishism phenomenon. > MORE
