Dress and globalisation

Margaret Maynard

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Design MUP

  • First work to survey dress and identity of cultures around the world
  • Draws on issues of consumption, ethnicity, gender and the body, as well as anthropological accounts and studies of representation
  • Examines international western style dress, jeans and business suits, headwear, ethnicity, traditional dress, 'alternative' dressing, and T-shirts as markers of identity
  • Dispels myth of universality of US style dress and shows that if economics permit, all cultures are selective in their choice of what to wear
