Thesis Working Title: 
Fashion as Spatial Practice: Urban Multiplicity and Identity in Singapore. 

This thesis takes a polycentric view of urban fashion as manifested in the city-state of Singapore. Positioned at the dynamic intersection of dress (fashion/adornment) and public space, this thesis questions how we might think of fashion as a spatialised social practice. My research will draw from literature within the disciplines of anthropology, fashion theory and theories of public space and placemaking. Methodologically, the thesis will employ ethnography to explore the phenomenological aspects of identity formation and placemaking through sartorial production and consumption.
