historical phenomena, perceptibility, tangibility, agency
When analyzing historical trajectory, it is essential to acknowledge that events are neither isolated nor spontaneous; rather, they are points on a dynamic historical continuum. Because these phenomena are often intangible, their public invisibility can be conflated with nonexistence. However, “History Through Fashion: The 2020 Collection” seeks to reimagine the history of 2020 as a wearable, material art. In doing so, the collection will not only increase the perceptibility of historical trends and human agency, but will rebrand history as an active and interdisciplinary domain.
