AboutAlicia Mihalic earned a Master’s degree in Theory and Culture of Fashion from The University of Zagreb, Croatia. She is currently employed as an Assistant Lecturer at the same graduate study programme and is responsible for courses related to history and ethnology of dress and textiles. Her research focuses on the intersection of costume history, fashion theory, and material culture studies, and establishes connections between dress and its socio–cultural representation in painting, photography, and film. She is mainly interested in the phenomenon of nostalgia, trend mechanisms, and the revival of former dress styles throughout the nineteenth century as well as the development of marginal clothing discourses during the second half of the same period. Her work has appeared in various journals across the areas of theory, culture and visual arts and has recently analysed links between the role of clothing and the absence of living bodies within the museum environment.
