Fashion Theory is published quarterly in March, June, September and December. The importance of studying the body as a site for the deployment of discourses is well established in a number of disciplines. By contrast, the study of fashion has, until recently, suffered from a lack of critical analysis. Increasingly, however, scholars have recognized the cultural significance of self-fashioning, including not only clothing but also such body alterations as tattooing and piercing.

Fashion Theory Vol. 6 : The Journal of Dress, Body and Culture.

It was established in 1997 and covers the study of fashion, including aspects from sociology, art history, consumption studies, and anthropology.

Fashion Theory takes as its starting point a definition of fashion as the cultural construction of the embodied identity. Valerie Steele is Director, The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and the author of Fetish, The Corset: A Cultural History, and The Red Dress. It provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for the analysis of cultural phenomena ranging from foot binding to fashion advertising. Fashion Theory provides a vital contribution to cultural studies, art, history, literary criticism, anthropology, fashion history, media studies, gender studies, folklore studies and sociology.

This journal takes as its starting point a definition of 'fashion' as the cultural construction of the embodied identity.
