Fashion and Psychoanalysis International Conference

Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th October 2017 (9.30am - 5.00pm Saturday; 10am - 1.30pm Sunday)
The Freud Museum, 20 Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead, London NW3 5SX

The Freud Museum is hosting an international conference bringing together psychoanalytic thinkers and fashion experts to offer fresh perspectives in fashion and mental health. Tickets from £25.

Speakers will address a wide range of themes connecting fashion, clothing, style and the body to psychoanalysis, creativity and unconscious emotional life. The conference will also explore the largely neglected role of fashion in clinical and mental health settings – aiming to address the many idiosyncrasies, taboos and paradoxes involved.

 

The second day will be dedicated to wellbeing and mental health in the context of fashion. Through research and clinical perspectives, it will invite you to unravel two rather paradoxical phenomena: the relative absence of psychology in the fashion world and the apparent absence of fashion in the clinical encounter. The conference will end with a panel discussion on ‘Enclothed cognition’.
