After a fashion
Joanne Finkelstein considers fashion in its various guises - as body decoration and costume, as a language and form of irrational play, as an expression of sexuality and part of the urban experience. Drawing on economics, art, psychology, commerce, history and the everyday, she traces and analyses the multiple influences that, in the name of fashion, affect the ways we think and act.
