EDITED BOOKS:



Fashion: Tyranny and Revelation

Edited by Damayanthie Eluwawalage
Year: 2016, Format: eBook (PDF); The Inter-Disciplinary Press, UK.
ISBN 978-1-84888-483-0; SKU: (concealed information)
Dimensions 148mm x 210mm; Pages 332

This collection of chapters endeavour to explore the consumption, governance, potency and patronage of attire in the context of social, socio-economic and fashion philosophies. Clothes, nutriment and habitation unexceptionally and uniformly were regarded as a fundamental human necessity and requisite; whilst attire was primarily acknowledged as an elementary utilitarian requirement, due to its sociological and economic significance. The collection represents a new departure in the study of dress, concerning the rationale behind individual and collective clothing demeanours in the existing society. Fashion’s ultimate function of signifying power and prestige, which linked with financial capability, and its impacts towards society and societal practice, is significant. Since the 1980s there has been a growing rapprochement between art and fashion in which fashion has increasingly come to be accepted as an art form.
