Fashion Theory

Fashion Theory | The importance of studying the body as a site for the deployment of discourses is well established in a number of disciplines. By contrast, the study of fashion has, until recently, suffered from a lack of critical analysis. Increasingly, however, scholars have recognized the cultural significance of self-fashioning, including not only clothing but also such body alterations as tattooing and piercing. Fashion Theory takes as its starting point a definition of 'fashion' as the cultural construction of the embodied identity. It aims to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum for the rigorous analysis of cultural phenomena ranging from foot-binding to fashion advertising.
