What should I put on? This is a question almost everyone asks themselves every morning. The possibilities today are endless and diverse. Through globalisation fashions from different contexts are brought together and coexist. Transcultural fashions are the theme of this sixth issue of Querformat. In Europe the globally active fashion industry banks on the spectacle surrounding haute couture. This book takes ather angle, trying to identify the interrelationships between the body, clothing and space in such a way that the political, ecomic and techlogical dimensions of the processes of colonisation and globalisation come into view.
