About the Author

Jo Entwistle is Senior Lecturer in Culture, Media and CreativeIndustries at King s College London.


"The Fashioned Body is a landmark text without which wemight still be exploring the sartorial as pure expression of thezeitgeist, never considering fashion wearers. Instead, in thisbeautifully written account, fashion emerges as a negotiationbetween designers and wearers in which the physical body iscentral. Updated and with new substantive sections on space andurban geography and the aesthetic economy , thissecond edition charts the rise of fashion from peculiarity ofWestern modernity to its centrality in contemporary global culturaleconomies. It explores fashion s gendered investments indebates about both pornification and modesty andcrucially frames fashion as situated bodilypractice ." Ruth Holliday, University of Leeds "This is a timely and much-awaited new edition of The FashionedBody, a path-breaking book that conjoined fashion, dress and thebody in new and exciting ways. The new edition clearly demonstratesthe value of drawing together complex, interdisciplinaryliteratures to explore and expose the making and shaping of fashionmarkets. The new emphasis on the ways in which clothing is alwaysembodied, contingent and context specific adds considerably to ourunderstanding of fashion practice. Entwistle weaves together apowerful narrative of how magic and meaning, design and desire areconjoined with market mechanisms and regulatory regimes to producefashion. By addressing the complex and interwoven amalgam ofproduction, consumption, creativity and constraint, Entwistlereveals the alchemy that is contemporary fashion. A must-read foranyone interested in the making and shaping of fashioned bodies." Louise Crewe, University of Nottingham
