Revue de presse

It certainly got me thinking ... two-thirds of the way through and my brain is fizzing like Alka-Seltzer ... Why Fashion Matters applies the mental jump leads and makes you think about what you wear, how you wear it and where it came from. --The Guardian

As much a personal manifesto as a multi-layered exploration of the significance of fashion in society ... thought-provoking ... designed to be dipped in and out of with ease ... Corner races through her subjects elegantly and succinctly. --The Financial Times

Lucid ... you don't have to take in the entire book at once. You can return to it later - and you will ... Chock-full of references to pop culture and history.

Combined info and inspo, peppered with facts, punchy quotes and personal insight. The natural teacher in Corner shines through in her writing ... a thought-provoking read delivered with gentle authority ... I can see myself returning to it again and again for reference ... an essential read for any aspiring fashion industry professional or fashion student. --Style London

Thoughtful ... cue loads of facts that'll wow your friends at the pub. --Glamour

A cool manifesto for flicking through that it's rather hard to disagree with.

Engaging. --Metropolitan (Eurostar)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Fashion is the most immediate and intimate form of self-expression. Faster than anything else, what we wear tells the story of who we are or who we want to be. Yet even as fashion touches the lives of each and every one of us, it can seem mysterious. Who better to guide readers into the dizzying world of fashion than Frances Corner, Head of London College of Fashion and a leading expert on this rapidly expanding, increasingly global, always exciting industry? In 101 provocative entries Corner teases out the glorious intricacies and contradictions of an industry that simultaneously values technology and craft, timeless style and fast fashion, the bespoke and the mass-market, consumption and sustainability, cold-hard numbers and creative expression. From Karl Lagerfeld and High-Tech Fur to The White Shirt to The One Trillion Dollar Business, each entry offers a unique avenue into fashion and its impact, both positive and negative, on lives around the globe. Accessible, instructive and hugely enjoyable, this book will be essential reading for anyone involved in fashion, business, education and beyond.

HASH(0x999f8c00) étoiles sur 5 According to Frances Corner "The United States imports 22% of its clothing" 15 décembre 2015

So far, a few good moments here and there but at page 32 I have to pause:
"The United States imports twenty-two per cent of its clothing."
Isn't more like 92%?

This is a very interesting and thought-provoking book. However, be advised that all of the text is very teeny. I'd recommend getting the Kindle edition so you can actually read it.
