Fletcher/Klepp (eds.): Opening up the Wardrobe
A Methods Book
This book presents a unique collection of 50 methods for exploring the actions, relationships and material contents of wardrobes. Organised as a practical guide to gathering information about people and their clothing beyond the point of purchase, it includes visual, tactile and verbal methods and others which involve making together, loitering and a session in the gym.
With contributions from four continents from both in- and outside academic circles, this book and the real lives of wearers of clothes that are its focus, create a powerful new narrative of a more diverse, resourceful, emancipatory and holistic fashion and clothing system.
Kate Fletcher is a Research Professor at University of the Arts London exploring design for sustainability in fashion.
Research Professor Ingun Grimstad Klepp works at Consumption Research Norway, sifo at Oslo and Akershus University College with consumption of clothing.
