Thinking Through Fashion: A Guide to Key Theorists (Dress Cultures)
Learning how you can think through fashion is both exciting and challenging, being dependent on one’s ability to critically engage with an array of theories and concepts. That is the first book designed to accompany readers through the process of thinking through fashion. It aims to lend a hand them clutch both the relevance of social and cultural theory to fashion, dress, and material culture and, conversely, the relevance of those fields to social and cultural theory. It does so by offering a guide through the work of selected major thinkers, introducing their concepts and ideas. Every chapter is written by an expert contributor and is devoted to a key thinker, capturing the significance in their thought to the understanding of the field of fashion, even as also assessing the importance of this field for a essential engagement with these thinkers’ ideas. It is a guide and reference for students and scholars within the fields of fashion, dress and material culture, the creative industries, sociology, cultural history, design and cultural studies.
