Fashion Theory: A Reader

£24.99

Product description

From its beginnings in the fifteenth century, intensified interest in fashion and the study of fashion over the last thirty years has led to a vast and varied literature on the subject. This collection of essays surveys and contextualizes the ways in which a wide range of disciplines have used a variety of theoretical approaches to explain, and sometimes to explain away, the astonishing variety, complexity and beauty of fashion. Themes covered include individual, social and gender identity, the erotic, consumption and communication. Each extract is introduced, placed in its historical context, and its significance for fashion theory is explained. By collecting together some of the most influential and important writers on fashion and exposing the ideas and theories behind what they discuss, this unique collection of extracts and essays brings to light the presuppositions involved in the things we think and say about fashion. Fashion Theory is an invaluable resource for undergraduate students across a range of disciplines including sociology, cultural studies and fashion. This paperback 2007 first edition appears to be unread: the cover is unmarked and the spine is broken; the pages are clean and bright.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
