Ixel Moda 2009

Today is the first day of Ixel Moda 2009, the second Latin American Congress on fashion, an event in Cartagena, Colombia, that seemingly aims to take the field of fashion studies to a whole new level. The event features fashion shows, table discussions, and is one that “combines the creative and academic sectors,” according to El Tiempo (Colombia).

This year, the event has lined up an array of special guest speakers, including Sass Brown from the Fashion Institute of Technology and Regina Root, editor of the Latin American Fashion Reader and author of Couture and Consensus: Fashion and Politics in Postcolonial Argentina, forthcoming in May from University of Minnesota Press.
