Jonathan Faiers

Dr. Jonathan Faiers is the reader in fashion theory at Winchester School of Art, having taught previously at Goldsmiths College and Central St. Martins, London. His work examines the interface between popular culture, textiles, and dress. Jonathan's critically acclaimed work, Tartan, was published in 2008, and he is currently researching his next book, Dangerous Dressing: Dysfunctional Fashion and Film, for Yale University Press. He has published articles, given papers, and organized colloquia on subjects including formlessness in knitting, classicism in sci-fi film costume, Balenciaga and ecclesiastical dress, tweed and gender subversion, and textiles and the production of space. Dr. Faiers's art installations have explored cultural commodification and the Kashmir shawl, Huguenot silk weaving and religious diasporas, and the representation of art spaces in mainstream cinema. He acts as a consultant and is a member of the Publications Advisory Board at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
