The rise and fall of popular positions in the field of philosophy is not governed solely by reason. Philosophers are generally reasonable people but, as with the rest of the human species, their thoughts are heavily influenced by their social settings. The relative instability of philosophical positions is a result of how the discipline is practised.
In philosophy, questions about methods and limitations are on the table in a way that they tend not to be in the physical sciences, for example. There is no counterpoint of this in philosophy. But this volatility is not like the paradigm shifts described by the US historian of science Thomas Kuhn.
A better analogy, in fact, would be changes of fashion. When thinking about fashion in philosophy, there are four basic categories under which texts, thinkers and ideas can be grouped. By considering the interrelation of these groups, we can begin to glean how an idea becomes fashionable.
The Philosophy of Fashion
The four categories are the fashionable, the foundational, the prohibited, and the unfashionable. Their thought is bedrock. Plato, perhaps, is the best example of a foundational thinker. I started out shooting fashion for MTV Magazine during my third year. Back then there wasn't social media around so all my work was in print. I continued working as a photographer in Japan but my turning point came when I was given a contract with DoBeDo, a world renowned leading advertising agency in London, as one of their photographers.
My work was also bought by Foam, a renowned photography museum in The Netherlands.

What got you interested in fashion photography in the first place? During my upper Matayom years, I dressed my friends up in death metal style outfits and took their photos with fake blood and full make-up. They were shocking for people back then and a teacher said I was aggressive. Fashion there goes beyond the clothing items themselves; it feels like a religion to people. In February It came to me while I was cleaning up my desktop and discovered a folder of my ideas which had been rejected by a client. As the director, creative and brand consultant, I pitched it to a client but they didn't buy it.
My mum told me, "If no one sees value in it, why don't you do it yourself. Tulee reminds us that all things never last long and will eventually return to nothingness. The difference was that no one told me what to do. I just walk out of the house with my film camera and smartphone to take photos or videos. In less than an hour, I'll always come back with some new ideas.

I'm interested in Buddhism, Zen and the wabi-sabi concept a Japanese principle which focuses on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. I feel like the core of life and truth can be found in religion already so there's no better raw material for art than religion, nature and ourselves, in my opinion. TRULY is my take on art which anyone can own. It's another form of selling art. To ask other readers questions about Fashion - A Philosophy , please sign up.

Great introduction to the world of fashion. This was a great dive into the scant serious criticism of the subject of clothes and fashion.

Or maybe the subject of his study appealed to me more than anything I have read in this genre, but Svendsen has some interesting points in his deductions about fashion and the consumer society at large, and I found that his views on parallels and differences between fashion and language are a good precursor to the analysis of today's visually obsessed fashion consumer, who has taken the illusion of physical and mental perfection a few steps in the wrong direction, and doesn't really know how to come back on track.
All in all, this book in itself is a harbinger of new theories about fashion and popular culture that heavily influence the general public, and brings a fresh perspective on the subject. Mar 03, CM rated it liked it Shelves: fashion. Nov 25, Cristina rated it really liked it.
