Fashion, Costume and Visual Cultures (FCVC) is the annual international, interdisciplinary conference of the FCVC Network, which aims to bring established, early career and emerging academics and practitioners together in order to explore key issues, theoretical debates, new methodologies and case studies exploring fashion and costume design and their distinct, yet simultaneously symbiotic relationship within contemporary visual cultures. 

Regeneration & transformation (economic, social, cultural and representational) will form a key conference strand within FCVC2019, with keynote and roundtable presentations by international curators, designers, makers and academics.  

Possible panel strands include, but are not limited to:
  • Clothing and identities
  • Screen and performance costuming
  • Cosplay and fan cultures
  • Designers, makers and retailers
  • Performance art
  • Fashion, art, and museums
  • Skin as costume
  • Transformation and lifestyle cultures
  • Stardom and celebrity
  • Film, TV, fashion and consumption
  • Fashion cities and street style
  • Fashion branding, editorial and advertising
Throughout the conference visits are planned to arts and cultural venues in and around Roubaix (including La Piscine-Musée d'Art et d'Industrie André Diligent). There will also be numerous opportunities for networking and special interest group meetings. Presenters at FCVC2019 will be encouraged to develop their papers for publication in a number of Intellect journals, including: Film, Fashion and Consumption, Clothing Cultures, Critical Studies in Men’s Fashion, International Journal of Fashion Studies and Queer Studies in Media and Popular Culture.
