Fashion Studies is a new voice in our field.

It will be published annually by Toronto Metropolitan University’s Centre for Fashion & Systemic Change and is an open access, academic journal in fashion studies, available to all at no cost to readers or authors. We join the movement of scholars who wish to push back against the exploitative corporate publishing monopoly that profits from publicly funded and free academic and creative labour. We believe in the democratic dissemination of scholarly and creative work that removes Western and elitist barriers and paywalls. Acceptance is based on a rigorous, double-blind peer review process by top scholarly and creative academics.

One of the strengths of fashion studies is its interdisciplinarity.

We welcome innovative work engaging with the study of fashion from all disciplines, including social sciences, humanities, and creative fields. We are open to diverse theoretical and methodological approaches in a broad range of written and creative formats. In light of the fact that fashion is one of the most exploitative industries of both people and the environment, we particularly encourage work that engages with the relationship between fashion, diversity, and social change historically and today. It is our aim to produce and disseminate work that both critiques the system and seeks to reimagine it, refashioning the world into a more equitable, just, and inclusive place.
