If looks can kill, who is the victim in fashion? Scholars Patricia Gherovici and Jamieson Webster will engage in psychoanalytic readings of fashion. They will analyze fashion impulses from the phallic charm of Gucci to the suicide of Alexander McQueen, from the invention of new fads to fashion as art or creation as understood in the Lacanian notion of sinthome.

There will be a Q&A with the participants during the YouTube premiere of this pre-recorded event.
