9780199757350: Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion, v8: Volume 8: West Europe

Published in the summer of 2010 in print and online, the 10-volume Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion is the first comprehensive reference work to explore all aspects of dress and fashion globally - from pre-history to the present day. Arranged geographically and written by an international team of experts, the Encyclopedia will serve as the go-to source for all issues relating the art and anthropology of costume, dress, and fashion the world over for students, scholars, members of the design and fashion industries, and fashion aficionados for years to come.

The Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion brings together for the first time the work of over 600 renowned scholars from every part of the globe. All articles have been specially commissioned and particular effort has been made to commission articles by indigenous scholars with in-depth local knowledge.

This volume examines the complex strands that make up the European tradition of dress and fashion. Europe's varied landscapes and climates have influenced ways of dressing, as have continental and regional historical movements. West Europe, while emphasizing the global importance of European dress and fashion since 1800, provides information about the earlier contexts for their development. It also provides an analysis of haute couture as well as concise introductions to ethnic dress traditions and developments in the making and selling of clothing. Mainstream topics such as the changing shape of the the female form are analyzed alongside current issues: ethics in the fashion industry, intelligent textiles, and subcultural dress, for example. Articles are illustrated by images ranging from exquisite couture creations to caricatures lampooning the extravagant follies of history's "fashion victims." This volume is the key reference work for everyone wishing to discover more about West Europe's seminal role in both fashion history and the shaping of cultural identities.

About the Author:


Editor Lise Skov is an associate professor at the Copenhagen Business School.

Review:


"The writing is readable for the layperson as well as the student or scholar... The inclusion of peripheral subjects illustrates hat there are many aspects of fashion and dress, and fashion and dress play a role in many aspects of human life" - Booklist


"This work is arguably the new benchmark in its field." - Library Journal


"In this age of reliance on search engines for research, the Berg taxonomy offers a refreshingly direct means of accessing the increasingly diverse range of literature on clothing and dress. This tool will aid individuals with general, specialized, and visual study needs." -Paula A. Baxter, Curator, Art & Architecture Collection, The New York Public Library


"The study of fashion (or dress) speaks to key research fields within human geography, including the body, corporeality, consumption, commodity chains and retailing. The BFL will be a key resource for researchers and graduate students in the field."-Nicky Gregson, Professor, Department of Geography, University of Sheffield


"This is a really worthwhile project. It will be useful for students at many levels of costume/dress/fashion studies. It is not intimidating and has the potential to expand and is flexible which is invaluable for a resource like this."-Valerie Cumming, Chairman, The Costume Society, and formerly Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Museum of London
