Abstract

The Arctic region is facing cultural, environmental and political transformation. These transformations raise urgent issues of independence, identity and climate crisis. Fashion provides a unique entry point to further understand the complexity of living in the remote regions of the Arctic, while being globally connected in a digital era. Reconciling with history, adapting to modernity, decolonization and governances present key themes, some of which will be addressed in this Special Issue. Fashion is understood here as a cultural, material and economic phenomenon in the form of dress and body adornment. More than ever, fashion is distributed and consumed on a global scale across even remote regions and extreme climates. This Special Issue brings together scholars from the region to share their research on fashion in the Arctic. The aim is to invite further studies of the practice and interpretation of fashion that reflect the immense diversity of the regions in terms of historical, cultural, ethnic and geographical realities and narratives.
