Fashion Theory Links

Growing out of Post-Modernist and Post-Colonial Sociology, "Fashion Theory" as it has come to be called (after the scholarly journal of that name), expands on, contradicts, and re-imagines the traditional views of the history of fashion and dress left to us by pioneering theorists like James Laver, Georg Simmel, and others.
