Valerie Steele gives keynote at Fashion Studies Conference in Barcelona

Valerie Steele, the Director and Chief Curator of The Museum at the
Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), delivered the keynote speech at II
Coloquio de Investigadores en Textil y Moda (the Colloquium of Researchers
in Textile and Fashion) titled “Nombres en la sombra.” The colloquium was
held from November 21 to 22 at the Design Museum in Barcelona in
conjunction with the Fundacio Historia del Disseny.

Steele’s keynote addressed recent and emerging issues in fashion
studies, focusing on exhibitions. Historically, fashion exhibitions tend to
be chronological or retrospective narratives by large individual
designers; however, there are many other important aspects that are set
aside. Her talk, “Deconstructing the Canon,” was delivered in English, with
simultaneous translation.
