Annotation: Fashion capitals, boutique streets, national traditions, and unique regional crafts: geography plays an important role in fashion mythology. New trendy loci, such as boutique “epicenters,” pop-up stores and online venues, are multiplying the diversity of the consumer experience by building more complex and personal relationships with the customer. This book is the first serious study of the economics of fashion from the point of view of geography. How does clothing go from factory to wardrobe? What determines its social and economic value? In this book, author and scholar Louise Crewe talks about both the attractive, glamorous side of the industry, as well as its “shadow geography” in the form of intricate production chains, labor exploitation, and incentivized poaching.
