9780415111584: Fashion As Communication

This work provides an alalysis of how fashion and clothing have been understood as a modern and postmodern phenomena. Drawing on theoretical approaches to culture, in particular those of Simmel, Derrida, Baudrillard and Jameson, the author assesses the consequences of postmodernism for fashion as a mode of communication. Concepts such as class, gender, reproduction and resistance are explored, and further reading on each subject is detailed.
