New Imaginations: Lara Torres
Lara Torres is a senior lecturer and course leader for the MA Fashion and Textiles at the School of Art and Design, University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom. She is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Arts London, at the London College of Fashion with a thesis titled Towards a practice of unmaking: a strategy for critical fashion practices.
Torres’ fashion research sits at the intersection of fashion design, fine arts, and film practice and theory, exploring notions of an expanded field of fashion, critical fashion and fashion film practices in the 21st century. The short film Unmaking explores the limits of fashion practices today and challenges the current fashion system and its focus on consumerism.
