New Contributor: Lucy Collins


Worn Through is thrilled to announce the addition of our newest contributor – Lucy Collins.

Lucy will be writing bi-weekly on Thursdays about international trends in fashion and their relation to socio-cultural issues. It will be great to have a more global perspective on Worn Through, and we look forward to reading her posts!

She will also be helping Monica out with all of those job postings that WT readers love. (Thank you Lucy for lending a hand! In this recession we need to get as many jobs up there as possible.)

Below you will find Lucy’s bio:

Lucy Collins is a PhD candidate in the philosophy department at Temple University. Initially interested in the philosophy of art, Lucy’s own fascination with her sewing machine led her to think of fashion as a possible realm for philosophical inquiry.

Lucy has worked in a variety of areas including museums, art publications, and yes, fashion, before returning to school. She has delivered papers at multiple scholarly conferences on fashion and is looking forward to speaking on Fashion as Confession at the 1st Global Conference: Fashion – Exploring Critical Issues this September in Oxford.”

    Lucy has one of a handful of the most perspicacious and critical eyes I have seen when it comes to art, philosophy, and fashion. I have been following her work for years, and the clarity and elegance of her observations is what makes me such a loyal reader of hers. Thank you for giving her another outlet for her writings. I look forward to her coming contributions as being one of the highlights of my week.
