EMERGENCE OF THE FASHION PSYCHOLOGY FIELD®

This course explores fundamental questions about the origins of the art of dressing by looking at how the concept of Fashion Psychology has emerged. Examines the 19th-century illumination of Fashion Psychology and how it was unknowingly interwoven through the fabrics of the 20th century. We ask whether fashion requires the onlooker to view thru an idiosyncratic lens or a collectivistic lens. Seeks to explain why the Fashion Psychology Field is needed in today's 21st Century.

A SOLUTION TO THE COMMONLY FELT ADAGE "I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR"

We have all uttered the common adage "I have nothing to wear" while looking at a closet full of clothing. You probably have pulled out half of your wardrobe and tried on several different looks. You look into the mirror at your reflection feeling defeated. You finally relent dressing in the last items you tossed to the side. You go about your day with an underlying feeling of dissatisfaction. This course will introduce the fashion psychological solution to the common adage "I have nothing to wear".

HOW TO PERFECT THE ART OF THE WORK UNIFORM

You open your closet door to find several of the same buttoned shirts, slacks, and blazers. Though you have severely diminished the anxiety by answering the daily morning question "what am I wearing today?", you are now concerned with what your employees will think of you. This course will introduce the new Fashion Psychology Field theories that correspond to the workplace and ways to diminish workplace anxiety.

The line demarcating men's and women's fashion has become blurred. The lines are not as clear as they once were. People are beginning to feel more comfortable now than ever. Men and women are beginning to define their own masculinity and femininity on their own terms. Though what does this mean for our society? How did we arrive here? Is it a temporary trend or permanent principle? This course will address the psychology behind gender neutral fashion.
