Contemporary Fashion and Images of New Media

Contemporary fashion theories reveal different perspectives of understanding the design of the new body of fashion through the knowledge and understanding of images. However, if fashion studies want to fully comprehend diversities of contemporary fashion in new media, then they must put into perspective a different way of understanding new images. Only through the exploration of the true meaning of the image, contemporary fashion theories can provide a clear path of understanding fashion design and the design of body. Contemporary fashion studies thus reveal how the body has been created and designed through different levels of the Image(s). It is of great importance to reveal what is the true meaning of images in new media and eventually to determine the true intention of contemporary fashion design and its body.
