A Dedicated Follower of Fashion
This collection of 28 fashion essays previously published in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker and The Atlantic examines clothing and fashion as part of a larger cultural debate and as a barometer of social and aesthetic change. In essays published during the 1980s and 1990s, the author reflects on a broad range of fashion subjects, from famous designers to designer eyeglasses, from the elegance of a Chanel suit to the decline of elegance itself in the 1990s, from Gianni Versace's legitimisation of vulgarity to the advent of athletic clothing as a fashion uniform. Longer essays from The New Yorker and The Atlantic are interspersed with 450-word pieces from the The New York Times Magazine.
