Abstract

abstract:

Although sound, touch, and smell are elements of clothing, the visual sense is predominant in fashion and fashion education, and fashion is essentially understood as a system of visual components. As an alternative to this dominant focus on visuality, fashion could be explored as a sound based interaction between body and dress.This artistic statement invites readers to rethink fashion as a visual culture and opens up a nonvisual perspective on fashion design aesthetics in regards to a sonic identity. The Soundtopia—a scenario of five possibilities for future sonic fashion and behavior—is presented as a new direction for alternative forms of design thinking through sound.
