Overview

The importance of studying the body as a site for the deployment of discourses is well-established. By contrast, the study of dress has traditionally suffered from a lack of critical analysis. Fashion Theory takes as its starting point a definition of fashion as the cultural construction of the embodied identity. It provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for the analysis of cultural phenomena ranging from foot binding to fashion advertising. Fashion Theory provides a vital contribution to cultural studies, art, history, literary criticism, anthropology, fashion history, media studies, gender studies, folklore studies and sociology. It is multi-disciplinary, features international coverage and is heavily illustrated.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A fine addition to academic institutions with cultural studies programs; essential for those with special collections in fashion and costume."--Library Journal

"Edited by the astute fashion historian Valerie Steele, the journal sets out to prove that fashion resonates in our culture."--The Washington Post

Washington Post
Edited by the astute fashion historian Valerie Steele, the journal sets out to prove that fashion resonates in our culture.
Times Higher Education Supplement
Fashion Theory is both chic and serious-yes, and sexy, too. There is much here to interest students of art, history, design, cultural studies, sociology, art history and anthropology.
