Hairstyles And Fashion

RRP $29.95

The way a society deals with hair speaks volumes about its structures, its wealth, and its values. How is hair arranged? Is it left long or cut short? How often is it washed? Do men and women treat their hair differently and what does this tell us about gender?

This stimulating book contains articles written by the Paris hairstylist Emile Long between December 1910 and December 1920 for an English trade journal. Long's purpose in writing was to keep English coiffeurs informed about the goings-on in the world of fashion and hairdressing in France, and especially in Paris. In doing so he has provided us with a personal cultural history of the world's most fashionable city in a period that stretches from the end of the Belle Epoque, through the First World War, and into the opening year of the Roaring Twenties. His investigation of hairstyles and fashion inevitably leads him to a fascinating discussion of important historical issues: the 'true' nature of Woman; the genesis and democratization of fashion; and popular attitudes towards hygiene. With his engaging literary style Long invites us to think about consumer habits and technology, notions of fashion and cleanliness, and changing ideals of femininity and the social order.

Students and scholars of history, fashion and French society will enjoy these rich and revealing accounts of what hair means to identity and culture.

Fashioning Society tells the story of the period from the 1860s to the 1970s, a time when a succession of haute couture designers-most notably, Charles Worth, Paul Poiret, Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, and Yves Saint Laurent-were the arbiters of fashion, and their creations were the weapon of choice for power-seeking members of the aristocracy and upper classes. The book explores the ways in which high fashion designers and their maisons mutually influenced the fine arts and sociological, technological, philosophical, and political developments. The author compares the "hundred years of fashion" to the current relationship of haute couture with other aspects of world culture and civilization. In addressing the question, "What has happened to high fashion design?" it presents what students of style and fashion should consider when trying to understand and predict broad trends.Features:-- "Looking Forward/Looking Back," demonstrates how motives similar to those that drove relationship between high fashion and society during the hundred years of fashion continue to affect those interactions today-- End-of-chapter boxes contain extracts from recent newspaper articles to generate discussion comparing the role of high fashion in the past and present-- The timeline in the appendix provides a chronological framework of events and trends-- 16-page color insert illustrates key examples of the work of the six designers whose stories form the core of the narrative
