Editorial Reviews

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.
From the Publisher

“We highly recommend the new issue of Fashion Theory, the academic journal edited by Dr Valerie Steele. The September issue, which arrived on our desk this morning, explores the increasing integration of fashion shows and performance art. There's also a fascinating exploration of early runway history, right back to the early 20th century.” —Worth Global Style Network
