Andrew Reilly looks at the different ways a style can become a fashion and how it can spread or decline. With student-friendly features such as discussion questions, activities, and further reading, after completing this text you will have a good foundation for understanding how, where, why, and when fashion exists.

This second edition, re-titled from Key Concepts for the Fashion Industry, includes expanded coverage of cultural appropriation, corporate greenwashing, and the connection between counterfeit goods and crime.
