In “Dress Code” Caterina Klusemann adopts the role of secret agent in her search for hidden dress codes that still do not seem to have lost their relevance – despite such trends as cross-dressing, the casual look and the, by now, universally acceptable jeans. Klusemann‘s findings run counter to common claims that ‚anything goes‘ in today‘s fashion, or that dress codes no longer apply. Using such unusual technical devices as ‚video-transformers‘ and ‚zoom-enhancers‘, she follows hot on the heels of the rich and famous and consults scientists and designers.
