Re-framing fashion : from original and copy to adaptation
Ferrero-Regis, Tiziana (2010) Re-framing fashion : from original and copy to adaptation. In 2nd Global Conference : Fashion : Exploring Critical Issues, 23-26 September 2010, Oriel College, Oxford. (Unpublished)
This article discusses the interaction between original and adaptation in the fashion system; the study also analyses, at a micro level, practices of adaptation adopted by consumers when making and re-making fashionable clothes. The article shows that the distinction between original and copy is historically determined as it grew out of the romantic notion of the authentic work of art. This article suggests that, in the impossibility to determine copyright in fashion, adaptation is a better descriptor of practices that transform garments; the concept of adaptation also abolishes trite notions of fashion as pastiche or bricolage, arguing for as a way to look at the many variations and re-contextualisations of garments historically and cross-culturally.
