Editorial Reviews

Review

Historically informed and critically integrated, The Fashion Reader sheds fresh light on key concepts in fashion studies: time, space/place, identity, and globalization. Susan Kaiser, University of California at Davis (from 1st edition) A panoramic collection of current and classic texts and an excellent introduction to fashion ... from history, cultural identity, gender, through to the business, economics, manufacturing and marketing of fashion. Pammi Sinha, University of Manchester (from 1st edition) Presenting rich, diverse, and significant essays, The Fashion Reader will contribute to and expand the study of fashion. Theresa M. Winge, Indiana University (from 1st edition) An invaluable resource that covers Fashion Studies' range of disciplines and approaches, The Fashion Reader will invigorate the growing field of fashion. Patrik Aspers, Stockholm University (from 1st edition) This is a useful starting point that demonstrates the richness of the subject, indicates the diverse themes to be explored, and the variety of approaches it is possible to take in examining both contemporary and historical fashion. Costume, Vol 42, 2008 (from 1st edition) This wide-ranging volume engages with issues of fashion, broadly conceived, from the historical through the theoretical to politics and business. -- Beverly Lemire, University of Alberta Winterthur Portfolio
