Dressing the Self/Other is a reflective piece by Matteo Augello that explores dress performance and re-enactment and their use as research tools and crucial elements in the teaching of fashion history. Augello is a PhD student at the Centre for Fashion Curation at London College of Fashion and a former freelance researcher for the V&A opera exhibition in 2017. Based on a video clip of his performance-lecture on ’The Art of the Prima Donna’, He will start off this interdisciplinary conversation on the topic of dress and performance by discussing some of his work on dress in Italian Opera.
