- We can order this
This revised and fully updated collection of essential readings surveys and contextualizes the ways in which a wide range of disciplines have used a variety of theoretical approaches to explain, and sometimes to explain away, the astonishing variety, complexity and beauty of fashion.
Existing sections include fresh material on `prosumption', the `zeitgeist', gay styles and Islamic responses to fashion, and new sections provide innovative readings on `Sustainable Design', `Digital/New Media and Fashion', and `Global and Transnational fashion'.
Bringing together the most influential and ground breaking writers on fashion and exposing the ideas and theories behind what they say, this unique collection of extracts and essays brings to light the presuppositions involved in the things we all think and say about fashion.
