Recommended Books

I can't get enough of books. Over the course of the lectures so far so many have been referenced or recommended- not to mention the speakers who are authors themselves. Dr Hazel Clark from New York's Parsons New School for Design gave the kickstart keynote talk yesterday afternoon, notes on the lecture will follow but for now here are some books I managed to jot down:

"Old Clothes, New Looks: Second-Hand Fashion"
A book by two of our speakers- Hazel Clark and Alexandra Palmer.

Check me out!

"The Travels of a T-Shirt in the Global Economy: An Economist Examines the Markets, Power, and Politics of World Trade"
Pietra Rivoli

"The Social Life of Things: Commodities in Cultural Perspective"
Arjun Appadurai

Check me out!

"The Fabric of Cultures: Fashion, Identity, Globalization"
Eugenia Paulicelli (Editor) and Hazel Clark (Editor)

You might also like this film- a still of which was used in the keynote presentation :)

Pret a Porter (1994), directed by Robert Altman.
