The volume’s contributors, who come from disciplines across the humanities and social sciences, explore such topics as: fashion trends in a global context, including contemporary Italian fashion identity; the kimono’s metamorphoses; the dynamics of luxury and basic fashion after the recent economic crisis; and the negotiation of social class and feminine identity. Their collective efforts contribute to the journal’s mission: the examination of fashion and beauty systems as symbolic spaces of production, reproduction, representation, and communication of artefacts; meanings; social practices; and renditions of cloth, clothing, and appearance.  

Critical Studies in Fashion and Beauty is the first journal of its kind to bring together a collection of pertinent articles from a dynamic and growing area of inquiry.
