Fashion History: A Global View Dress, Body, Culture

#ad
#ad
Bloomsbury Academic #ad - Arguing that fashion has occurred in cultures beyond the West throughout history, this groundbreaking book explores the geographic places and historical spaces that have been largely neglected by contemporary fashion studies, bringing them together for the first time. Reversing the dominant narrative that privileges Western Europe in the history of dress, Welters and Lillethun adopt a cross-cultural approach to explore a vast array of cultures around the globe.

Providing a fresh framework for fashion history scholarship, anthropology, Fashion History: A Global View will inspire inclusive dress narratives for students and scholars of fashion, and cultural studies. They explore key issues affecting fashion systems, ranging from innovation, production and consumption to identity formation and the effects of colonization.

Fashion History: A Global View Dress, Body, Culture #ad - . Case studies include the cross-cultural trade of silk textiles in Central Asia, the cosmetics of the Tang Dynasty in China, the indigenous dress of the Americas and of Hawai'i, and stylistic innovation in sub-Saharan Africa. Fashion history: A Global View proposes a new perspective on fashion history. Examining the new lessons that can be deciphered from archaeological findings and theoretical advancements, the book shows that fashion history should be understood as a global phenomenon, originating well before and beyond the fourteenth century European court, and erroneously, which is continually, cited as fashion's birthplace.
