Abstract:

This book presents an unconventional view of contemporary fashion as seen in the creative ways that people around the globe adorn their bodies. From cardboard shoes in Africa to body paint in New Guinea, from chimney sweeps in France to an Indian Elvis, the authors scans the globe to show how real people dress: at work, on the street, or for ceremonial occasions. With virtually no text, this book pokes gentle fun at the elitism of the fashion world, presenting its provocative observations through dynamic images by some of the world's foremost photojournalists.
