• A Call to Arms: Rick Owens’ Babel Collection

Richards, Jennifer, 2019, Conference or Workshop, A Call to Arms: Rick Owens’ Babel Collection at Gothic Manchester Conference 2019: Gothic Times, Manchester, England, 26 Oct 2019.

Abstract or Description:

Rick Owens is a force of nature within American fashion. His rebellious style and signature dark aesthetic have enabled him to subvert and reflect contemporary issues of the time. Never one to shy away from controversy, his collections have addressed the refugee crisis, the #MeToo Movement and the effects of Donald Trump’s Presidency on American society.Babel makes a subversive statement about the need to overpower the ideals of the Trump administration. In our Post Truth era, this collection is a call to arms which offers a new vision for America.
