Fashion And The Selfie Culture
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Mal Burkinshaw, Programme Director of Fashion at Edinburgh College of Art and Director of the Diversity Network discusses and debates the role that fashion plays in stereotyping ideals of beauty " when are we ever good enough? With the rise of the me, me, me selfie culture " why do we succumb to pressure to present an image of ourselves to the world that is not the image we see in the mirror, or the image beneath the skin? This show asks whether empathy can ever change the strict doctrines of current beauty codes.
