These devices can be tailored to local or personal needs in ways that are not practical or economical using mass production.
Fashion and Modernity Christopher Breward, Caroline Evans 2005 book, fashion, history, contemporary fashion
This book tests the very definition of modernity and enhances our understanding of the role of fashion in the modern world. From top hats to locomotives, dresses to retail outlets, fashion is a prism through which modernity reflects and refracts. Breward and Evans bring together an organic collaboration of voices on this subject. The collection ranges from such topics as James Morrison (1789-1857), the Napoleon of Shopkeepers; to dress in the Stuart era; The Mannequin Parade, 1900-1925; and clothing the London actress (1860-1914). From the relationship between clothing and forensic sciences, to the play of performance, parasexuality, and the celebrity, Fashion and Modernity offers an enlightening look at fashion and the modern age.

Materials and products are developed in TXT. The notion of a ësemi-finished productí plays an important role, enabling us to mediate between all kinds of end uses: architecture, fashion, interior design and industry.

Within the applied framework of the department, there is the opportunity to develop more autonomously oriented work. The world of visual designers is no longer strictly divided between artists and designers. The confusion between these two positions is productive, and you will be challenged to use it.
