Regional Changes is a bi-annual publication by Dean Mayo Davies, which focuses on fashion and its relationship with society.
Based in Swansea, South Wales but with an international outlook, modern progressive dress is put through a filter; incorporating myths, legends, pertinent contemporary issues, moods and the extreme intensity of local landscapes.
These moments are abstracted into specially commissioned art projects, leading to a portrayal of the fashion season through the eyes of the editors of the publication, and a unique distillation of the cultural zeitgeist at this time.
The editorial slant for the publication has been summarized by the editors:
We feel by relating clothes to abstracted ideas we can gain even stronger relationships with them. We believe dress is a surface through which many deep-rooted ideas can be expressed. An ongoing conversation, a debate spurred by word-of-mouth. A performance with an agenda of building, not destroying. Passion and faith for the future. New moods, ideas, movements and thoughts.
