New year, new beginning – A letter from Shaun Cole

This blog was originally set up in September 2010, as ‘Fashion Beyond the Threads’, to allow students on the MA History and Culture of Fashion to explore, discuss and raise interests, concerns and debates around the historical and contemporary fashion and dress, outside the formal classroom based situations associated with the course. Following a series of interesting posts the enthusiasm wore off at the class of 2010-11 embarked upon their final dissertations. Subsequent years were uninterested in using the blog as a forum for discussion and debate and so the blog lay dormant. However, with a new enthusiastic intake in September 2013 the group has opted to reactivate the blog, with an editor, an editorial team and a series of thematic explorations that have arisen out of both personal and more formal classroom based opinions, thoughts and debates around fashion.
