The Fashion Theory Library

The goal of the series is to introduce readers to classic and contemporary academic research on the history and theory of fashion. The project's scope is vast, from the cultural meanings of fashion to the language of costume in different eras, the relationship of clothing to the body, the history of the fashion industry and the perception of clothing as a text.
