Transcultural fashions are the theme of this sixth issue of Querformat. In Europe, the globally active fashion industry banks on the spectacle surrounding haute couture. Our issue entitled Dressed Up takes another tack, identifying the interrelationships among the body, clothing, and space that throw the political, economic, and technological processes of colonization into sharp relief.
