Fashion Design

Where does fashion fit into design history, theory and practice?

This is a question I need to give some consideration to. I tend not to think of fashion design in the same way I think of other design disciplines like: architecture, product, graphic, interaction...

Maybe its because fashion, in general, seems less driven by constraints, but seems more influenced by what people preceive as suitable and are puchasing (the market)and less about the inter-play between the designer's intentions and users needs. Hmm!

I'm glad to see that you are willing to challenge your ideas of the 'rightness' of fashion design standing up next to the other design disciplines. As part of your search for meaning, you may consider attending an exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston running from November 12, 2006 - March 18, 2007. Looks interesting, let me know if you come to town. I promise a lively conversation/ debate on the subject. Be prepared!
