Producing Fashion looks to the past, revealing the rationale behind style choices, while explaining how the interplay of custom, invented traditions, and sales imperatives continue to drive innovation in the fashion industries. Anyone who has ever considered how and why fashionable trends emerge will find something of interest in its pages.
