De macht van de mode Over ontwerp en betekenis

By Rosetta Brooks, Patrizia Calefato, Ginger Gregg Duggan, Akiko Fukai, Henk Hoeks, Erik de Kuyper, Dirk Lauwaert, Ulrich Lehmann, Gilles Lipovetsky, Ted Polhemus, Jack Post, Karin Schacknat, Anneke Smelik, José Teunissen, Chris Townsend, Barbara Vinken

Fashion encompasses more than the latest skirt length, the newest colours or the most up-to-date accessories. Image, individuality, group identity and countless other facets also play a role. And fashion is no longer only prescribed by the catwalk - what happens on the street is just as important. Fashion is a mirror of society and reveals its social connections. 'De macht van de mode' uses word and image to explain how fashion is interwoven into every facet of society. A thread running through the book is formed by prominent designers, a colourful, innovative sampling of what fashion now has to offer.
