If you are visiting London for Fashion Week, there will be a chance on Saturday 19th of Feb to hear Trendstop.com CEO, Jaana Jätyri speak about forecasted body image and body concepts as part of the V&A museum's Fashioning Body Shape & Style event.
Psychoanalyst and writer Susie Orbach and fashion columnist and author of Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life, Justine Picardie will join Jaana to discuss the past, present and future of women's body perception and body image in the fashion industry, examining who, why and what influences attitudes towards age, shape and size.
The panelists will explore fashion imagery and inspiration, body modification surgery and the new silhouettes, the ethics of ethical fashion, and the implications of generation in retail. Looking to the future of fashion and what it holds for consumers, the panel will consider the pressure on women to remain youthful, and the trends towards luxury and increasingly fanciful, independent styling in recessionary times.
Jaana will explain how artists are exploring body concepts and the relationship between the body and clothing - viewing the body as artistic and artful rather than sexual – and how designers are making statements through nudity and taking inspiration from anatomy.
The panel discussion takes place at 3.30pm and is part of a free all day event which starts at 11.00am with live styling. Entry to the panel discussion is on a first come, first served basis.
