We are pleased to announce our call for papers and proposals for the next special Fashion issue of Scope (Art and Design) to be published in November 2019. Reflecting the diversity of contexts in which fashion operates, is studied and practiced, the theme of this issue is ‘Fashion Fluid’. Authors are encouraged to consider this theme broadly and we welcome submissions from all fields and disciplines that contribute to critical debates and new understandings of fashion and the fashion system.

We are open to a range of formats for inclusion, including: articles, perspectives, essays, designer pages, exhibition reviews, project reports, photo essays. Proposals for other formats will also be considered.

Please also include a short biography, including your institutional position and affiliation (where relevant); and contact information (postal, email and telephone number). Please ensure this is provided as a separate sheet from the abstract for review purposes.

For publication, all photographs require written copyright permission. Consent forms are available on request. Please include low resolution images for the submission. Please note that final images for publication need to be high resolution (300dpi), CMYK images.
