Fashion, Body and Identity

Eva Klein, Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences Faculty of Health Sciences, McMaster University, and Marie Saint Pierre, fashion designer

How we view and feel about our bodies has much to do with our culture’s expectations. Fashion has traditionally venerated certain body types, and beauty trends have shifted over time. Today, a more inclusive definition is emerging. The message is that all bodies are beautiful, and fashion is coming to embrace that view.

This lecture is presented thanks to the support of Magdeleine Loevenbruck.
