My current research is on the relationship between East European and Western fashion throughout the 20th and 21st century up to today. It investigates the inspirations they have drawn from each other's cultures, the borrowings that have taken place, as well as the lost meanings in such translations on both sides. I am also engaged in research on fashion media within the wider field of the rise and impact of new technologies on the mediation of fashion. This research is related to my role of Coordinator of the Fashion Media and Imagery Hub, and co-editor of a book on Fashion Media, to be published by Berg.
