For the hardcover edition, see Worldwide W032543. Publisher's description: In The Fashion Reader, Linda Welters and Abby Lillethun have selected 77 influential articles to offer insight into the critical theories and conversations that surround this huge international industry. The essays are drawn from books, professional and academic journals, magazines, and exhibition catalogues, bringing together new and established concepts to offer a solid grounding in the history, business and culture of fashion. For added context, each of the 15 parts has an introduction from the editors, guiding you through the interdisciplinary world of fashion studies, and each part concludes with annotated further reading suggestions. This third edition has been substantially revised with 55 new extracts and 78 new images to give prominence to diverse issues such as sustainability, identity, the body, and global perspectives, from 'The Commodification of Ethnicity' to 'The Cultural Heritage of Tattooing'.
