Christina H. Moon

Christina H. Moon is an Assistant Professor of Fashion Studies in the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons School of Design.

Her research looks at the social ties and cultural encounters between design worlds and manufacturing landscapes across Asia and the Americas, exploring the memory, migration, and labor of cultural workers. Moon writes on fashion, design and labor, material culture, social memory, the ephemeral and everyday, and ways of knowing and representing in ethnographic practice.

She is a fellow of the Social Science Research Council, Graduate Institute of Design, Ethnography, and Social Thought and India China Institute at The New School, and member of the Fashion Praxis working group at Parsons.

Her most recent book project is Ephemera, in collaboration with the photographer Lauren Lancaster, which traces fast-fashion across Los Angeles, Seoul, and New York. She is also author of Labor and Creativity in New York's Global Fashion Industry and the co-edited volume, Fashion and Beauty in the Time of Asia.
