We invite you to submit proposals, abstracts, film, and/or panel presentations to contribute to an intensive three days of discussion and collaboration in Ho Chi Minh City, to share current and future practices of education, design, making and entrepreneurship, and reflect on how these practices will shape and innovate the fashion industry.
All paper submissions will be considered for inclusion in a planned book publication documenting differing perspectives shared at the event.
These themes are our current prompts:
Production modes, making enterprises, new entrepreneurs
Village model, family business, farmer/maker
Micro to mass-production
Hand – made, craft
Scale – SMEs, SOEs, micro enterprises
Localism and Globalism
Role of design
Role of education – jobs of the future
Engagement of local and global industry, market and media in redefining the fashion ‘Made in Vietnam'
Engagement of business and fashion design
Identities of younger generation entrepreneurs, new meanings of production of design and fashion in context of Vietnam
Submission Guidelines for Abstract/Workshops
Abstracts and papers are double-blind review, so both reviewer and author identities are concealed throughout the review process. Therefore authors are not to identify themselves in the submitted abstract.
Send abstract submissions by 29 February 2016 to Professor Robyn Healy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
