(keynote lecture) Redesigning the European Fashion Map: Creativity as a Response to Crisis in Post-Industrial Economies

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePaperAcademic

Abstract

In the 1980s, some European governments promoted designer fashion among other measures as the best way to survive the crisis in the clothing and textile industry. Advanced economies sought to maintain their leadership in creativity once the struggle for clothing production
was lost in favor of outward processing. This paper explores how countries such as Belgium and Spain managed to remodel their clothing sector emulating
the examples of France and Italy.
