In the 21st century, it has become fashionable to claim that fashion is dead. The death of fashion refers to the rise of “fast fashion” which has accelerated the cycle of trends and highlighted ethical problems of fashion production.

CRITICAL IS THE NEW BLACK addresses the negation of fashion. It asks, what are the possibilities of fashion as social commentary and critique beyond consumerism? How can fashion help us reflect and rethink culture, world and ourselves? How can fashion help to create a better future in the face of current cultural, political, economical and climatological challenges?
