Walking the city as 'defashioning pedagogy'

In June 2023 LCF fashion media educators Sophie Barr and Sarah May are conducting a ten mile “defashioning walk” for staff and students from Shepherd’s Bush to the new campus at East Bank.

The walk presents an opportunity to think and sense with human and non-human kin how fashion media is embedded in a fragile planetary system. Pozzi’s “pedestrian pedagogy of place” describes sensory learning through walking. We will use pedestrian methods to map the global fashion city in more earthly and material ways that resist growth narratives more common to fashion cartography.
