Why Study Dress?

Book chapter + STUDIO

Dress is one of the most interesting aspects of human behavior we can study. Everyone in the world “dresses” their body. Dress has long been a means to communicate information about the self to others, to express the self creatively, and to protect the self from physical and psychological harm.

Video Art And Videophilia

Adam Geczy and Jacqueline Millner

Book chapter

From the beginning, video art was understood as anti-establishment. It can lay claim to a unique origin: unlike other visual arts media, it was forged in the crucible of contemporary, rather than modern, classical or ancient, art. It had no tradition so was not beholden to it. It had no canon so could start from scratch in response to its immediate circumstances. It had no critical discourse so was not accountable to it. It promised to democratize the production of images. Video art emerged at th

Book chapter

While our perceptions and attitudes play an important part in how we choose fashion goods, our personalities also influence our actual purchasing behavior. As we defined in the previous chapter, personality is made up of those individual psychological characteristics that routinely influence the way people react to their surroundings, including how they make buying decisions. In addition, while personalities are lasting, they can change, through maturing, or after an accident, illness, or other v

Global Consumers of Fashion and Design

Book chapter

To be successful, marketers need to understand how people differ from place to place, especially in today's interconnected world. In the United States alone, people of different nationalities, religions, locations, political parties, and social classes have beliefs and customs that are unique. Can they all want the same products among the dizzying array of goods available? (see Figure 14.1.)

Bibliographic guide

The word “media” is the plural form of “medium,” from the Latin, meaning “middle” or “middle layer.” Thus, a medium is much like a middleman, a conduit that serves to “lead” or “bring together.” In fashion, each medium functions to hold and deliver information: visual, textual, cultural., Berg Fashion Library

Dress, along with cloth, textiles, and adornment, has been an important part of the study of material culture in anthropology since the early times of the discipline, when the focus was on cross-cultural variation and the relationships between different parts of culture and their changes. Some earlier studies aimed specifically to record the significance of material culture in the face of change in a manner that sometimes has been described as “salvage anthropology.” A later generation of anthrop, Berg Fashion Library

The Place of Fashion Television in Cinema History: Industrial Discourse and Cultural Legitimacy

Book chapter

The 1998 inaugural edition of the Hollywood Reporter: Fashion in Entertainment special issue emerged during a time of supposedly increased synergy between the fashion and film industries; yet its title—Fashion in Entertainment (my emphasis)—suggests that the trade press anticipated a much more seismic shift which would engulf a number of media and entertainment industries. However, echoing Ginsberg’s comments cited above, it was assumed that sport and music would be the most suitable platforms fo

Fashioning Celebrity: Class, Tastemaking and Cultural Intermediaries

Helen Warner

Book chapter

In her article ‘Bringing out the * in You’, Deborah Jermyn (2006) calls for the substantial revision and re-imagining of traditional paradigms of television fame (Ellis 1992; Langer 1981). Using Sarah Jessica Parker as a case study, she demonstrates the ways in which the development of American ‘quality’ television complicates the longstanding assumption that ‘stardom proper’ is an exclusively ‘cinematic phenomenon’. Deriving from Ellis’s model (outlined in the introduction), it has long since be
