Design ⇅ Research ⇄ Sociology
Gender ⇆ Visual Culture ⇅ Fashion
Floriane Misslin
⤷ My practice resides somewhere between visual and critical design, fashion and gender studies, sociology and feminist research methods. I developed a distinctive feminist approach to research and pedagogy to creatively engages in the designing of research methods and reflect on how research performs normative representations of social realities. I now study gender fluid practices of fashion photography as a PhD candidate in visual sociology at Goldsmiths and develop public engagement strategies for different research networks relating to fashion, feminist design research and visual sociology.

My book ⟶Diagramming Fluidity studies the diverse ways of envisioning the fluidity of gender in fashion photography whilst the clothing industry is established on the binary menswear / womenswear. The visual outcome of the research is part of the exhibition Designs for Different Futures currently on show at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, US.
