Fashion as Masquerade focuses on issues of power, social positioning, ideologies, and practices within the web of relationships between creators, producers, practitioners, and end users of fashion. Masking has a rich history, but it is also a metaphor for fashion itself. Fashion is a mask that constructs or subverts meanings. Exploring the contemporary meanings of masks, masking, and masquerade, essays here consider masking in its various forms as a conscious or unconscious form of behavior. Masking is revealed as a strategy for reclaiming control over the construction of meanings, and creating a space for resistance that is independent of either social prescriptions or the controlling gaze.
