Call for Submissions: “Fashion & Time”

Parsons’ BIAS, The Journal of Fashion Studies invites you to submit to the upcoming issue of BIAS: Journal of Fashion Studies on the subject of “Fashion & Time”.

We are looking for original pieces of writing and visual media. Content may include (but is not limited to): photography, drawing, painting, poetry, interviews, fiction, non-fiction and academic writing.

The theme this year will explore the idea of fashion and its relationship with time.

Fashion’s premise is being ahead of time and is synchronous with modernity; we yearn to be fashion forward. In recent years, however, the linear relationship between fashion and time has become more circuitous and contested.

Is fashion’s relationship with time getting further complicated, or has there been another shift with how they intersect with one another?

We invite contributors to address the following questions:

  • Has fashion dictated time or vice versa?

  • How has the intersection of fashion and time impacted society?

Submissions along with a 150-word bio must be received by November 30th, 2018 via e-mail at:

Specifications accepted are:

  • Maximum of 1000 words for written pieces

  • Maximum of 10 images for photography or other visual media

Notice of acceptance/request for revisions:
Beginning of December 2018.

For any questions, please contact:
