Fashion and inclusiveness

The Western fashion world is traditionally bearer promoter of tastes and models of beauty linked both to imageries and institutionalised systems that are rooted in time, and difficult to unhinge. 

While the advent of the new millennium has brought a growing awareness and progressive interest on the theme of inclusiveness, especially on the part of public opinion, virtuous practices still seem to be scattered and minoritarian. 

The Centre for the Study of Fashion and Cultural Processes (ModaCult Centre) has long cultivated a special attention toward the world of inclusive fashion, in its multiple aspects. In pursuit of this goal, it supports and coordinates various research projects exploring the following topics: post-colonial approaches, Afro-descendant fashion, Modest Fashion, social fashion (tailoring workshops in prisons, tailoring workshops for migrants and refugees), adaptive fashion and disability.
