日仏における日本人デザイナーの表象―フランスと日本新聞の言説分析を通して



monografijaRepresentations of the Japanese Fashion Designers in France and Japan –Through the Discourse Analysis of the French and Japanese Newspapers (1981-1992)
Author: Dr. Kyoko Koma

It is the first Centre’s monograph. The research tries to throw right on how French and Japanese newspapers represent Japanese fashion designers who create “Japanese phenomenon” in Prêt-a-porter of Paris in 1980’s and their works through the Discourse Analysis of French School. Author of the monograph makes a conclusion that even if Japanese and French newspapers treat the same event, that is, Japanese phenomenon Japanese fashion designers create in Prêt-a-porter of Paris in 1980’s, each newspaper interprets this phenomenon relevantly and creates different representation from it according to each social context.
