The contributions of this session seek to explore the interconnections of finance and fashion in the twentieth century in different parts of the world: How did the turn to consumer banking, popular investing or digitization change the style of finance? And how did fashion contribute to creating and changing the social image of finance? In what ways was fashion instrumental in gendering finance and banking? How was “financial fashion” reshaped when women begun to enter the world of finance as consumers and as bankers, traders, financial professionals. And how did banks and financial organizations use fashion as a means of public relation, or corporate identity creation? Were there any international trends or national differences in these connections between finance and fashion?
