What do clothes say?

what do clothes say

A piece by Shahidha Bari in Aeon explores the premise that clothes can be forms of thought as articulate as a poem or equation. Bari explores the possible interpretations and deeper meanings of the non-verbal communication system which is clothing and fashion.

Citing Kant, Heidegger, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Marx, Freud and others who are not usually considered “fashionistas”, the piece is insightful, imamgintaive and a must read for human centred designers.
