Clothing is a form of expression; examining fashion trends in society can provide insight into how people view themselves and how they want to be perceived by others. Articles in this anthology explore the link between fashion and personal identity, what men's and women's fashion trends reveal about gender roles, and the fashion industry's role in dictating what's "in."
"Fascinating, informative reading as well as a solid research support; a generous, annotated selection of additional resources is appended."
