Fashion Theory

ISSN (printed): 1362-704X. ISSN (electronic): 1751-7419.

Fashion Theory is published quarterly in March, June, September and December. The first issue was published in March 1997. The importance of studying the body as a site for the deployment of discourses is well established in a number of disciplines. By contrast, the study of fashion has, until recently, suffered from a lack of critical analysis. Increasingly, however, scholars have recognized the cultural significance of self-fashioning, including not only clothing but also such body alterations as tattooing and piercing. Fashion Theory takes as its starting point a definition of 'fashion' as the cultural construction of the embodied identity. It aims to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum for the rigorous analysis of cultural phenomena ranging from foot-binding to fashion advertising. Fashion Theory provides a vital contribution to the following disciplines: cultural studies, art history, literary criticism, anthropology, fashion history, media studies, gender studies, folklore studies and sociology.
