Adele Varcoe is a fashion activist who creates fashion experiences that explore the social affects of fashion, dress and clothes. She brings people together to construct participatory performances that explore the elusive nature of fashion. Working with actors, models and the public Adele investigates how fashion affects the social relations between us. She is interested in the behaviour fashion provokes and the role social interaction plays in shaping our perception of dress.
Adele has a PhD in fashion and has presented her work worldwide. Some highlights include The Future of Fashion is Now at Boijmans Museum, Rotterdam, and Feeling Fashion at ACCA, Melbourne.
