At 22 years old, fresh out of university, Ms. Kennedy Fraser left England and moved to New York City for a job that no longer exists today: "Feminine Fashions" columnist at The New Yorker. She wrote about the panoply of costumes walking down Fifth Avenue, couture collections, and the emergence of "electronic" shopping, assuming the role of the seasoned analytical observer - and convincingly too, given her safe and acknowledged lack of experience. In the 33 essays collected here, Fraser, who is critical of the fashion establishment, vigorously examines the trends and temperament of her time, using lofty rhetorical devices to analyze who is wearing what and why.
