I’m researching wearable technology as a new frontier in ‘enclothed cognition’ and what I’m calling ‘enclothed performance’ at the London College of Fashion.
- Enclothed cognition: influence that clothes have on the wearer’s psychological processes
- Enclosed performance: influence that clothes have on the wearer’s performance
- Embodied cognition: influence that body states have on states of mind
Here’s an evolving bibliography of research papers for others interested in enclothed cognition, starting with a fun primer video on Enclothed Cognition.
