Berg encyclopedia of world dress and fashion. Global perspectives

Joanne Bubolz Eicher (Editor), Phyllis G. Tortora (Editor)
Global Perspectives provides a transnational overview of dress within the global arena. 'Intelligent' textiles and the impact of recent developments in nanotechnology are addressed alongside such popular culture phenomena as cosplay, based on Japanese comics and animation, and virtual worlds, where avatars provide opportunities for multiple, shifting identities. There are broad overview articles on the fashion industry and its impact worldwide, secondhand clothing, and ecofashion, which has evolved out of a concern for ethical consumption. Such varied topics as beads and perfumes are situated within a global context, and there is an informative section on dress and fashion resources worldwide, including museum collections. Global Perspectives provides an important cross-cultural overview of human dress and adornment across the globalized world
