Paris has been the international capital of fashion for more than 300 years. Even before the rise of the haute couture, Parisians were notorious for their obsession with fashion, and foreigners eagerly followed their lead. From Charles Frederick Worth to Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent, fashion history is dominated by the names of Parisian couturiers. But Valerie Steele's Paris Fashion is much more than just a history of great designers. This fascinating book demonstrates that the success of Paris ultimately rests on the strength of its fashion culture – created by a host of fashion performers and spectators, including actresses, dandies, milliners, artists, and writers. First published in 1988 to great international acclaim, this pioneering book has now been completely revised and brought up to date, encompassing the rise of fashion's multiple world cities in the 21st century. Lavishly illustrated, deeply learned, and elegantly written, Valerie Steele's masterwork explores with brilliance and flair why Paris remains the capital of fashion.

During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the production of dress shifted dramatically from being predominantly hand-crafted in small quantities to machine-manufactured in bulk. The increasing democratization of appearances made new fashions more widely available, but at the same time made the need to differentiate social rank seem more pressing. In this age of empire, the coding of class, gender and race was frequently negotiated through dress in complex ways, from fashionable dress which restricted or exaggerated the female body to liberating reform dress, from self-defining black dandies to the oppressions and resistances of slave dress. Richly illustrated with over 100 images and drawing on a plethora of visual, textual and object sources, A Cultural History of Dress and Fashion in the Age of Empire presents essays on textiles, production and distribution, the body, belief, gender and sexuality, status, ethnicity, and visual and literary representations to illustrate the diversity and cultural significance of dress and fashion in the period.

In ihrem fulminanten, komisch-tragischen, autobiographischen Debütroman erzählt Négar Djavadi aus der Sicht ihres Alter Egos Kimiâ Sadr die Geschichte ihrer Familie, die aus Iran stammt. Ein zweiter Erzählstrang betrifft Kimiâ selbst und ihre Schwangerschaft. Die klappt nur mit Hilfe der Medizin und der Mann dazu ist auch nur geliehen – Kimiâ liebt eher Frauen. In Teheran geboren und seit zehn Jahren im Pariser Exil, hat Kimiâ stets versucht, ihr Land, ihre Kultur, ihre Familie auf Abstand zu halten. Doch die Geister der Vergangenheit holen sie wieder ein, um in einem überwältigenden Bilderreigen die Geschichte der Familie Sadr in drei Generationen vor ihr abzuspulen: die Drangsale im Leben der Ahnen, ein Jahrzehnt der politischen Revolution, die Winkelgassen der Adoleszenz, berauschende Rockmusik, das schelmische Lächeln einer blonden Bassistin. Und dann gibt es, im dunklen Kern dieses atemberaubenden Romans über den Iran von gestern und das Frankreich von heute, noch eine furchtbare Geschichte zu erzählen

Dass Frauen in linksterroristischen Gruppen aktiv waren und den bewaffneten Kampf befürworteten, rief in den 1970er-Jahren massive Verunsicherungen hervor. Dominique Grisard analysiert am Beispiel des Linksterrorismus in der Schweiz vergeschlechtlichte Sicherheitsdiskurse, die das Phänomen Terrorismus mit der "pervertierten" Emanzipation ausländischer Frauen verknüpften. Über die Abgrenzung von der Figur der maskulinen, ausländischen Terroristin versicherten sich der Staat und seine Bürger des "Eigenen", nämlich einer bürgerlichen Geschlechterordnung, die aus Beschützern der Nation und ihren Frauen und Kindern bestand.

Paris, Capital of Fashion accompanies a major exhibition at The Museum at FIT, New York's only museum dedicated solely to the art of fashion. This lavishly-illustrated book is edited by MFIT's director and chief curator, Valerie Steele, also the author of the acclaimed Paris Fashion: A Cultural History. This new book opens with an important essay on how and why Paris became famous as the international “capital of fashion.” Steele traces how the mythic “aura” of Paris fashion was constructed over generations, as the splendour of the court at Versailles came to be echoed by the spectacle of the haute couture. Yet Paris has faced repeated challenges from other fashion capitals, especially London, Milan, and New York. Essays by Christopher Breward, David Gilbert, Grazia d'Annunzio, and Antonia Finnane place Paris within a broader global narrative, while Sophie Kurkdjian investigates the cultural value of the Parisian couture, and Agnès Rocomora explores the online imagery of the chic Parisienne. As The New Yorker recently put it, Paris is “the most glamorous and competitive of the world's fashion capitals.” No other city has been branded “Fashion” as Paris has. By opening the study of Paris fashion to new approaches, this book explains why Paris still retains its position as the world's undisputed fashion capital.

This book is the first to make the case that women's changing role in European andAmerican society was critical to Dada. Debates about birth control and suffrage, a declining malepopulation and expanding female workforce, the emergence of the New Woman, and Freudianism wereamong the forces that contributed to the dadaist enterprise.Among the female dadaists discussed arethe German émigré Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven; Berlin dadaist Hannah Höch; expatriate poetand artist Mina Loy; the "Queen of Greenwich Village," Clara Tice; Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap,the lesbian couple who ran the Little Review; and Beatrice Wood, who died in 1998 at the age of 105.The book also addresses issues of colonialist racism, cross-dressing and dandyism, and the genderingof the machine.

The 20th Century saw the effective end of haute couture, the rise of prêt à porter and, finally, the triumph of street fashion. Bonnie English unravels the complexities and contradictions behind these changes to chart the history of modern fashion. What caused the demise of haute couture in the 20th century? What does the "democratisation" of fashion actually mean? Which key designers bridged the gap between "couture," with its associations of elite class and taste, and "street style," a product of tribalism and of popular culture and protest? If fashion imitates art and art imitates life, does life imitate fashion--do we wear the clothes or do the clothes wear us? Setting fashion within its social, cultural and artistic context, this book presents an engaging history of the interplay between commerce and culture, technology and aesthetics, popular culture and pastiche, and fashion and anti-fashion.

This is the first study of the cultural meanings of advertising in the Irish Revival period. John Strachan and Claire Nally shed new light on advanced nationalism in Ireland before and immediately after the Easter Rising of 1916, while also addressing how the wider politics of Ireland, from the Irish Parliamentary Party to anti-Home Rule unionism, resonated through contemporary advertising copy. The book examines the manner in which some of the key authors of the Revival, notably Oscar Wilde and W. B. Yeats, reacted to advertising and to the consumer culture around them. Illustrated with over 60 fascinating contemporary advertising images, this book addresses a diverse and intriguing range of Irish advertising: the pages of An Claidheamh Soluis under Patrick Pearse's editorship, the selling of the Ulster Volunteer Force, the advertising columns of The Lady of the House, the marketing of the sports of the Gaelic Athletic Association, the use of Irish Party politicians in First World War recruitment campaigns, the commemorative paraphernalia surrounding the centenary of the 1798 United Irishmen uprising, and the relationship of Murphy's stout with the British military, Sinn Féin and the Irish Free State.
