Focusing on the example of art school-trained fashion designers in relation to the fashion industry as a whole, Angela McRobbie argues that although the industry is inevitably seen as volatile and under-capitalised, there are in fact more opportunities for co-operation across the whole field of fashion production than feminists and policy makers have frequently imagined. Angela McRobbie is Professor of Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is the author of several books and articles on contemporary culture and cultural theory.
NB: Questions are difficult to hear during Q & A.
