The book gives a clear summary of the theories surrounding the role and function of fashion in modern society, and examines how fashion plays a crucial role in the formation of modern identity through its articulation of the body, gender and sexuality.

In examining fashion in relation to the body, the book offers a much needed synthesis between the literature on fashion and dress, which has tended to ignore the body, and the sociology of the body, which has tended to marginalize fashion and dress.

Entwistle shows how an understanding of fashion and dress requires an understanding of the meanings acquired by the body in culture – since it is the body that fashion speaks to and which is dressed in almost all social situations and faahioned. She argues that while fashion refers to a specific system of dress originating in the west, all cultures ‘dress’ the body in the same way, making it a crucial feature of social order.

Drawing on the work of Douglas, Foucault, Merleau-Ponty, Goffman and Bourdieu, the book offers insights into the connections that need to be made between the body, fashion and dress, arguing for an account of fashion and dress as ‘situated bodily practice’. The Fashioned Body will be an invaluable resource for students and academics interested in the social role of fashion and dress in modern culture and will also be of interest to students and researchers in the areas of consumption, cultural studies, gender studies and feminist theory.

The Fashioned Body: Fashion, Dress and Social Theory, 2nd Edition

Boxy book is absolutely amazing and I strongly recommend it to anyone who’s interested in studying fashion in general – whether it’s business, history, culture or whatever. Jul 23, Malcolm rated it really liked it Shelves: Entwistle starts from the basic position that there are significant and serious gaps in fashion-linked fwshioned Her conclusion is that there entqistle two gaps — fashion, dress Entwistle starts from the basic position that there are significant and serious gaps in fashion-linked scholarship: Her conclusion is that there are two gaps — fashion, dress and clothing as lived experience so we need to inject the body into sociologies of fashion and the linkage of production and consumption.

This is partly a result of the balance of content — there are about 25 pages on the fashion industry, or so on historical and contemporary meanings of embodied fashion plus nearly 80 exploring the theoretical justification for considering embodiment as jaonne to making sense of fashion and clothing.

Consequently, the brief production-consumption linkage element of the analysis is more tantalising than satisfying, suggesting many more questions than it does answers — but the case for considering embodiment is extremely good, historically savvy, and insightful.

Apr 23, Jana rated it liked it Shelves: It’s a very good introduction to fashion theory I did need it! It also includes a brief history of Western fashion and makes a point of relating aesthetics to bovy politics and economic hoanne, which is great.

My only complaints are that it is a bit repetitive that’s better if you are only interested in a chapter and that some parts could have used a bit more depth.

Still, it’s a very good introduction and it’s thankfully readable.
