Fashion journalism embraces all kinds of media commentary, but primarily newspaper and magazine articles, about the fashion industry, those who populate the fashion world, and fashion itself. As such, it has commercial, ideological, and symbolic functions that have remained unchanged since the mid-1800s.

People attractively or unusually dressed have been popular graphic subjects at least since the sixteenth century, when the Costume Book or Trachtenbuch brought them into popular publishing. By the middle of the seventeenth century, the graphic artist Vaclav Hollar had given such illustrations new artistic status and Bosse, Callot, and de Hooghe began to group their fashionables in suitable settings.

In Michael Arlen’s best-selling 1924 novel, The Green Hat, the heroine Iris March is compared to a figure in a Barbier fashion illustration: “She stood carelessly like the women in Georges Barbier’s almanacs, Falbalas et Fanfreluches, who know how to stand carelessly. Her hands were thrust into the pockets of a light brown leather jacket—pour le sport” (Steele, p. 247). The casual elegance ascribed to Arlen’s character, a quintessential element of the 1920s fashion ideal, epitomizes Barbier’s fig

The discovery of the Iceman “Oetzi,” who lived between 3500 and 3000 b.c.e., provides valuable information on early dress. His many garments included a patchwork-style goat-fur mantle. Much later, Roman dress included tunics and togas for Roman citizens or friendly allied nations. In 816/817 Charlemagne’s son, Louis the Pious, made monks and members of the clergy accept dress codes. Lay men and women were required to dress differently, and women had to cover their heads in public. Fashion during

Encyclopedia entry

Australian fashion photography has a relatively short history, starting with the earliest examples of fashion advertisements from the beginning of the twentieth century through to the popularization of the genre in Australia via the work of modernist photographers such as Max Dupain and the postwar heyday of Helmut Newton and others. An exploration of the strong voice of independent publishers who have helped to market Australian fashion and style is noted and includes the internationally recogni

Paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, illustrated newspapers, magazines, and newsreels provide vital sources of information about appearance, upper-class fashions, and the broader social picture of dress in Australia. Through such representations, the overall look and detail of attire survives long after original garments have disappeared. In the emerging penal society of colonial Australia, from the late eighteenth century, it was important for the well-to-do to cultivate the appearance of r

Dress and Art: Western

Sandra L. Rosenbaum

Encyclopedia entry

Images of people wearing clothing create an obvious connection between dress and art. Because relatively few examples of historic garments survive, these images document the history of dress. Historically, those sitting for portraits chose their dress to project a specific image; the artist was responsible for conveying messages encoded in dress, meticulously reproducing them. Ann Rosalind Jones and Peter Stallybrass have commented that Renaissance clothes were perceived as material forms of pers

This appropriation of art nouveau styling coincided with the moment in the history of couture when a united business structure was firmly established by the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Unrivaled elsewhere in the Western world, Paris couturiers dressed the women of international royal courts and high society including in Japan and tsarist Russia, the wives of the wealthiest international plutocrats, and the great actresses of the Paris stage. Commercial clients already included the

Encyclopedia entry

The creation of a fashion collection in a big fashion company is a complex cooperative process. Various people with diverse skills and experiences, such as designers, brand specialists, clothing technicians, production planners, and others, are involved in the creative process from the idea to the finished collection. HUGO BOSS, a leading European high-end fashion company, is a case in point. Because of the company’s strong product focus, each product group (for example, shirts or knitwear) is ha
