The global context of contemporary fashion enables the transcending of cultural boundaries that were once more fixed and as a result the sharing of cultural references is immediate images and identities are combined and juxtaposed raising questions about how we understand and read fashion and in turn how we understand our cultural and creative identity.
The world is more accessible, seasons are less definable and an increase in travel requires consumers to have more flexible choice to accommodate this. Trends and fashion looks are now far more instantaneous ideas are shared in cyber space and through the media to a global audience, collections are streamed from the catwalk on sites such as www.
Consumer groups are changing, we live in a culture focused on youth markets and seemingly unattainable airbrushed images of fashion ideals. Celebrities are driving fashion agendas and endorsing products or increasingly designing lines themselves. Class divisions are shifting and I argue that high and low cultural signifiers are in effect merging.
As Caroline Evans points out: Now the fashioned garment circulates in a contemporary economy as part of a network of signs, of which the actual garment is but one. Bruzzi, S. The promotion and marketing of fashion has become a creative space in which photographers, illustrators, marketers and art directors are able to extend fashion practice, challenging methods of communication and the role of fashion as commercial and creative conduit often working on the interface of other disciplines and in new spaces.
Fashion merchandising is being continually reinvented and methods of communication are becoming more and more sophisticated to draw in consumers and compete with competitors and to target an increasingly media and technology savvy market.
There is a shift towards new methods of display and the boundaries between the gallery, museum, social space and retail environment can be seen to be blurring in store spaces such as Dover Street Market, London and The Louis Vuitton Flagship store in Paris. Fashion Curation has developed as a distinct discipline in the UK in recent years, highlighting this shift towards contemporary fashion exhibition as opposed to historical costume and fashion display in museums.
The retail space is arguably adopting the appearance of the art gallery whilst simultaneously gallery spaces are becoming more commercial and focus is placed on the merchandise as for example in the Tate modern in London.
Consumers are becoming more sophisticated viewers and they are seeking much more from a retail experience than purely to purchase clothing, they seek to be entertained, educated and seduced.
Despite this couturiers such as John Galliano, Christian Lacroix and Jean Paul Gaultier continue to create lavish and highly crafted garments that are presented in dramatic catwalk shows often akin to theatre and showcasing the exceptional skills of couturiers and crafts people.
It is true however that through economic necessity couture houses are now functioning predominantly as brands to promote the sale of perfumes, footwear and sunglasses or diffusion ranges of jeans and T-shirts, diversifying their brand name into related lifestyle markets.
The mass market consumes ideas and looks far more quickly and designer products are counterfeited and reproduced cheaply abroad undermining the social standing of the designer and the brand English, p.
Garment manufacture in the UK is also now predominantly outsourced to other countries where production is far cheaper.
The fashion system itself has started to fragment and the traditional 'trickle down effect' where couture and catwalk looks feed down to the high street is being turned on its head, as several writers point out Entwistle, , p.
As more emphasis is put on consumption of fashion and the fashion image, the designer's own process is shifting. High-end designers appear unsettled by a range of rapid contemporary shifts.
High street designers and manufacturers are able, through access to the Internet, to copy designs straight from the catwalks before the designers themselves can get their garments into the shops. The lack of trend direction from the catwalks of London, Paris and Milan over recent years English p.
There is a growing divide between conceptual and commercial fashion in the UK and this is reinforced by the growing number of practitioners involved at the image generation end of the industry: This current period could be viewed as one of the most challenging to the fixed divisions between levels of cultural outputs and creative discipline boundaries.
The relationship between fashion and art is a significant feature of the changes in the fashion industry over the past ten years. There has been a continual exchange and from the later part of the s the distinction became difficult to draw. Some high-end designers in response to the lack of control afforded in a consumer driven system are dividing up areas of their practice and functioning in different contexts and commercial and non-commercial spaces simultaneously.
Alongside their commercial lines, they are stepping out of the fashion cycle, rejecting seasons and recycling of historical periods, as well as the business of constant renewal, to find a more holistic, creative and in-depth process that is more akin to the origins of couture and more in keeping with personal philosophies. Designers such as Shelly Fox, Dai Rees have returned to a process led approach to design rejecting fashion seasons and commercial imperatives.
Others such as Miyake, Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, Rai Kawakubo, Simon Thorogood, Helen Storey and Lucy Orta, are selecting more permanent and culturally significant contexts in which to communicate their work or are challenging the contemporary fashion system, making socio political comment through there work supported through patronage and or creative funding bodies.
Fashion now serves a range of functions and means different things to different audiences and consumers in different contexts.
