Vestoj: On Capital
Edited by Anja Aronowsky Cronberg
As the 9th issue of the annual academic journal Vestoj, ‘On Capital’ examines the symbolic power of design alongside the material economic dynamics associated with money and clothes. This issue looks at assets and value in all their varied forms: the social currency of beauty, the financial workings of the fashion industry, issues of branding, economic profit, cultural creation, and personal style. The publication includes a number of essays, prose pieces, interviews, and visual elements.
Vestoj is an annual publication produced under the partial patronage of London College of Fashion. The journal focuses solely on sartorial matters, bringing together academia and industry in a bid to combine academic theory, critical thinking, and a bit of good old-fashioned glamour.
