POSTPONED

If looks can kill, who is the victim in fashion? Scholars Patricia Gherovici and Jamieson Webster will engage in psychoanalytic readings of fashion. They will analyze fashion impulses from the phallic charm of Gucci to the suicide of Alexander McQueen, from the invention of new fads to fashion as art or creation as understood in the Lacanian notion of sinthome.

All Fashion Culture events are free, but registration is required; register online here, call (212) 217-4585, or email [email protected].
