Address is an independent, advertising-free, journal for fashion criticism. A platform online and in print to think, talk and test ideas around fashion and approaches to criticism in a rigorous, entertaining and accessible manner. Expanding and contracting fashion as a topic of interest, Address records the transactions of fashion in society – from the way you tie your shoelaces to the impact of the latest catwalk.
Published in October 2011, this 112-page debut issue is our first exploration into defining and challenging the idea of ‘fashion criticism’. It features a variety of written and visual pieces addressing fashion from different perspectives, whether it is close examinations of our relationship with clothing to wider issues affecting the culture, politics, economics and practice of fashion.
