Fashion Month: Social Change

Email a Friend

As Fashion Week wraps up, Hazel Clarka professor in the MA Fashion Studies Program and research chair of Fashion at Parsons The New School for Design and the co-author of The Fabric of Cultures: Fashion, Identity, and Globalization  (Routledge, 2008) continues the February series on fashion with a look at social changes play out in what we wear, from "haul videos" to new fashion icons.

Who's your fashion icon?  Do you deliberately model your style on someone else's? Michelle Obama? Snookie? Someone you saw on the subway last week?
