Behind the Book: The Making of Fashion Animals

Monday, August 13, 7:30 PM

 

This fall Joshua Katcher releases his much anticipated book, FASHION ANIMALS, a five-year research project resulting in the only critical book on how animals in fashion become seductive symbols of power. The book includes an archive of rare images and a theoretic approach to the fashion industry's intentionally hidden history of staggering, global impacts on animals and the environment, from extinctions to massive industrial confinement and killing operations. Join us on Monday August 13th, 2018 where Joshua will present a captivating slideshow and discussion of animals in fashion.

 

More about Joshua Katcher

Joshua Katcher is a fashion designer, author, activist and educator who has taught at Parsons The New School and LIM college, and has lectured internationally on sustainable and ethical fashion at universities from Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania to The American University of Paris and NYU. Katcher launched the first vegan, ethically-made menswear fashion brand, Brave GentleMan in 2010. VOGUE says that, "The full scope of Katcher’s ethical commitment is rather head-spinning, just as it is to gape about his Williamsburg shop, with its complete future-is-now men’s range”. Brave GentleMan has graced the cover of British GQ's November 2016 Issue on Benedict Cumberbatch. Forbes has featured BGM in their gift guides, while COMPLEX called BGM one of the “coolest things” they've seen. Katcher was awarded " Menswear Brand of the Year, 2016" and "Most Influential Designer of 2015" by PETA. He was a contributor to HuffPo style, has appeared on the cover of Vegan Good Life Magazine, and has been interviewed on major networks, such as Al Jazeera America and PBS Newshour as a fashion expert.
