Dis-Comforting, Distancing and Presenting: Mature men’s experiences of fashion

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchExhibition

Abstract

This paper accompanies the fashion installation consisting of the “Dis-Comforting”, “Distancing” and “Presenting” suit jackets, and films, which stem from my doctoral project in which I investigated older men’s experiences of fashion and clothing [1]. The research was conducted through my practice as a creative practitioner and the artefacts are corresponding to the subordinate set of themes which emerged in the process of phenomenological and arts-informed data analysis. In my project I developed a novel hybrid methodology, Arts-Informed Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis. Rooted in phenomenology and arts, it put to the test the concept of ‘making’ as a valid way of data analysis. The research process built on the concept of the hermeneutic circle; the subsequent activities of writing and making
allowed me to constantly move between different elements of the participants’ experiences of fashion as they grow older, which in turn facilitated the conditions for in-depth understanding and enhanced interpretations of those experiences.
