The aim of thestudioArena is to create a platform to highlight the importance of fashion — especially “experimental” and sustainable fashion — within current critical discourses. Through interviews with a range of artists, designers, writers and curators, as well as through other planned projects and exhibits, we hope to foster a dialogue between theory and practice across disciplines. We investigate the relationship between style and identity.
We are primarily an online community of contributors.
