Mode and Mode 5 explores the influence of Helen Hessel's writings. Helen Hessel (1886-1982) was a German fashion writer, whose writing was parts experimental and experiential. It includes reprints of Hessel's writings along with English translations alongside the German. Also included is an interview with Mila Ganeva, PhD, an Associate Professor of German Studies at Miami University.
Mode and Mode is a periodical that addresses printed matter in fashion practice. Each issue explores experimental publishing in fashion with an interview around a print-based project — one that has critical effects to fashion as a discourse. In doing so, we reflect on the role of print and its potency to disrupt or propel, fashion narratives. They are based in Victoria, Australia.
