The principle aim of this article is to contribute to the development of a phenomenology of fashion through an analysis of my relationship with clothing using Heidegger’s phenomenology of Being as outlined in Being and Time (1997) to provide the study’s methodological foundations.

I say ‘a’ phenomenology; however, I will argue that it is only through engagement with the ‘partial perspectives’ and ‘situated knowledges’ (Haraway 1988: 583) offered by individual Beings-in-their-worlds that small but significant intersubjective truths can be identified.
