Poiret, Dior and Schiaparelli : fashion, femininity and modernity by Ilya Parkins( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a highly original and detailed analysis of the memoirs, interviews and other life writings of Poiret, Dior and Schiaparelli, this book explores changing notions of femininity in the early decades of the twentieth century, when the democratization of fashion began. Examining the idea of modernity, eternity and the ephemeral in the writings of these haute couturiers, the book reflects on fashion's ambivalent approach to women, which both celebrated and vilified them, presenting them as both ultra modern style leaders and irrational creatures stuck in the past. This fascinating text is ke

Revisiting the gaze : the fashioned body and the politics of looking by Morna Laing( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1975 Laura Mulvey published her seminal essay on the male gaze, ushering in a new era in understanding the politics and theory of looking at the female body. Since then, feminist thinking has expanded upon and revised Mulvey's theory and much of the Western world has seen a resurgence in feminist activism as well as the rise of neoliberalism and shifts in digital culture and (self-)representation. For the first time, this book addresses what it means to look at the fashioned female body in this radical new landscape. In chapters exploring the fashioned body within contexts such as queerness, veiling, blackness, pregnancy, fatness, and criminality, Revisiting the Gaze addresses intersectional debates in feminism and re-evaluates the concept of the gaze in light of recent social and political changes. With an interdisciplinary approach, bridging fashion and fine art, this book opens the door to discussions about the male gaze and the fashioned body." -- Provided by publisher
Fashion : new feminist essays( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by a rapidly changing fashion landscape, Fashion: New Feminist Essays offers historical and contemporary studies that reveal the relationships between fashion with gender, sexuality, race, and age.Fashion is a rich terrain for feminist scholars in the twenty-first century. Explicit engagements with feminist and queer politics, critical interventions by industry outsiders across digital platforms, diversifying images of stylish bodies, and ongoing discussions of the ethics and sustainability of fashion production: all of these point to an urgent need to reappraise the relationship of fashion to feminism and other justice-seeking movements. The essays in this collection take up fashion as a feminist critical tool that uniquely holds together the lived and represented body with larger cultural structures. Contributors unearth surprising new lines of connection between gender, sexuality, race, age, and religion in their relationship to capitalism, both historically and in the present. Bringing together established and emerging scholars, and perspectives from gender studies, history, sociology, philosophy, and literary studies, Fashion: New Feminist Essays traces the far-reaching impact of this most feminized of forms, underscoring the significance of fashion studies for understanding the politics of culture. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Australian Feminist Studies journal

Domesticating enchantment: Mediating feminine magic in the interwar French fashion magazine( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article examines men's writing about women as vectors of enchantment in three interwar French women's magazines, La Femme Chic à Paris, Vogue and Gazette du Bon Ton. Such articles appeared frequently, and modernised the ancient discourse of feminine enchantment by locating it in tropes of industrial modernity, including women's fashion and style. While enchantment is a promising concept for feminist and critical scholars, its representation in this genre of men's writing domesticates its potential to disorient and challenge masculine subjects and conventional knowledges. The essay explores how the generic qualities of the modern women's magazine contribute to such a domestication, and shows that tropes of modern alienation appear as the underside of feminine enchantment. The analysis suggests that we must view the women's magazine not as women's space, but as a heterogeneous cultural space that intermittently reinforces masculine authority
