Like a theatre set, the runway is a carefully designed space that shapes the viewer’s perception of an artist’s work.

On a broader scale, fashion itself reflects the places, cultures and traditions that produce it. At the same time, the globalisation of fashion has hugely impacted national fashion cultures, transforming business models and approaches to design.

In recent years fashion has transcended place altogether, with the industry shifting much of its presence online.

From the catwalk to cyberspace, from the street to the global stage, our Featured Content explores the ways that space and place influence fashion, and vice versa.
