Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, “Thinking Critically about Fashion: An Introduction to Vestoj” – SVA MA Design Research

Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, “Thinking Critically about Fashion: An Introduction to Vestoj”

Vestoj bridges the gap between theory and practice in fashion, and to date includes an annual journal, an online site and live performative events, themed around topics such as “material memories,” “shame,” “power,” and “time.” Due to its cross-disciplinary approach to fashion, and regular contributors from both academia and industry, each Vestoj project is a reflection and interpretation of current thinking and practice around ideas of fashion and its contribution to society.

Anja Aronowsky Cronberg studied Fine Art and History of Design before founding Vestoj in 2009, as a platform for critical thinking in fashion. She currently lives in Paris, and now produces Vestoj under the partial patronage of London College of Fashion, where she also works as a Senior Research Fellow in Fashion Theory and Practice.
