Abstract:

As a tool of the individual and of culture, clothing has meaning. In this program, students explore the functional, social, and psychological aspects of clothing. Viewers learn how clothing provides more than just protection from the elements; it offers comfort, helps us to fit in with our peer group, and encourages us to follow trends. The right clothes can boost our self-image and confidence, too. We examine the fashion industry, as well as the influential role that marketing and advertising play in our daily decision of what to wear.
