This round table session is the first of a series of attempts that we plan on the topic "Fashion cultures and Fashion discourses." The prime purpose is to interrogate all aspects of fashion –it’s past, it’s present and it’s future. We hope to pursue this at the North American ACR in 2007, and also follow it up with a publication on the topic in a special issue of Consumption, Markets & Culture. At the outset we want to specify that for a topic this broad, we include a caveat – that materialism and society are indelibly entwined. A multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural approach allows us to tie together the different strands that form the world of fashion.
