Fashion In Transition
In this timely book, three noted fashion historians examine the global transformations in the fashion industry today and identify the challenges of the future. Since the dawn of designer fashion at the beginning of the 20th century, the role and position of the designer have drastically changed. This book addresses how the interpretation of creativity, authorship, craft, and innovation have evolved in this new context, and asks what role designers play in a globalised and digitised fashion world.
