Fashion and Race Database

The Fashion and Race database provides access to research and resources aimed at addressing racism and promoting diversity throughout the fashion system. The database is focussed on illuminating under examined histories and amplifying the voices those marginalised within the fashion industry. The database is arranged into five main sections:

  • Objects that Matter, under explored fashion objects, images and collections
  • Profiles of fashion leaders, designers, style icons and historical figures
  • Library of reading lists, books, films and documentaries, lectures, exhibitions, journal articles
  • Essays, news and opinion
  • Community, including a fashion directory, calendar and opportunities

The database platform offers research and publishing opportunities to students, researchers and writers interested in addressing issues around racism in fashion.
