Fashion Media is a thought-provoking collection of essays written by international scholars that re-evaluate and question the value, application and message of past and present fashion media ... With the world of fashion and its associated media undergoing colourful metamorphosis and its agents of change engineering a volatile creative environment, Fashion Media is a valuable contribution to this dynamic dialogue. -- Catherine Glover, Northumbria University * Costume *
A feast for the fashionista scholar! Sparking readers' interest in a wide array of fashion media, fifteen authors provide analysis of magazines, visual arts (paintings, photographs, and film) and digital developments, spanning the 17th to the 21st centuries. New names, new insights and provocative ideas arise aplenty raising questions to ponder and arguments to challenge. -- Joanne B. Eicher, Editor-in-Chief, Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion and Regents Professor Emerita, University of Minnesota, USA
