As one of its longstanding institutional members, we are immensely proud of our affiliation with IFFTI. Here at Manchester Fashion Institute, we hold the Foundation in high regard and continue to be fully committed to its core values, promoting and leading fashion education and research.
Fashion can take innumerable forms and have all manner of definitions. Fashion reaches across a long and complex supply chain; it stretches through time and space; it is said to be fast and to be slow; it is material and symbolic; it may be a single garment, an alternative lifestyle or an entrepreneurial business model (to name but a few examples).
Our theme for IFFTI 2019, is intended to celebrate this dynamism. FASHION: ID is a limitless proposition that has been designed to challenge, interrogate and stimulate, rather than mapping the limits to current (or even future) fashion identity. The subthemes and areas for exploration are:
Personal: ID | Community: ID | Global: ID
Caryn Franklin - Former Fashion Editor of i-D Magazine, prime-time TV Presenter and Broadcaster.
