This work ‘is the result of extensive research into the background of each featured fashion week, and is structured as a game which must be played to be truly appreciated. […] The fashion cities are located not, as might be expected, on the solid ground of continents, but instead on a game board constructed of what has the look and feel of textile – the cloth that is the “ground” of fashion. The cities are placed on a crisscrossed grid of latitude and longitude that implies the tangled network of connections, of influence and power in the globalised world.’
