トビー・スレード

Toby Slade is an Associate Professor at the University of Tokyo researching Asian modernity and the history and theory of fashion. His previous research has focused on Asian responses to modernity seen through art objects of the everyday like fashion, the suit and its role in modernity, the ideas of style and the classic, and the governing dynamics of systems of fashion. His doctoral research at the University of Sydney examined the Modernity of Japanese clothing and the implications of that unique sartorial history for contemporary theories of fashion. He also lectures at Keio University and has lectured at the University of Technology Sydney in fashion history and theory. 

In 2009 his book Japanese Fashion was published by Berg covering the entire sweep of fashion and clothing in Japan from the earliest times to today.
