Abstract Publishing is an essential component of the fashion industry, but also offers a space to experiment, conceptualise and galvanise critical narratives on fashion. The Fashion Design Council (FDC), particularly through the organisation's co-founder and graphic designer Robert Pearce, were prolific in the creation of printed matter as an exercise in creative thought as well as communicating and consolidating the group's ideology and culture. The exhibition High Risk Dressing / Critical Fashion held between February 17 and April 13, 2017 at the RMIT Design Hub brought local fashion practitioners into the archive of the FDC - which largely comprises print ephemera - to respond with works that reflect a new, expanded notion of critical fashion. This essay frames comments captured in the event 'The Limits of the Page', a panel discussion I convened within the exhibition program, to explore fashion on the page towards an emerging framework of critical fashion practice.
