an engaging look at dress and its complexity in communication by utilizing contemporary examples and providing historical as well as current perspectives. Journal of Family & Consumer Sciences
Fashion Talks brings together a diverse group of feminist thinkers, and raises questions that may challenge its readers to think of style and its offshoots in new ways. Sadie Magazine
Fashion Talks simultaneously examines the joy and subversive potential fashion holds This discomfort, this shaky ground where fashion and feminism converge Tarrant, Jolles and their contributors open this space where we can channel our fashion choices whether that be sneakers or heels, Prada or DIY, red lips or chapstick for political progress. Bitch Magazine
The contributors to this collection take fashion seriously, neither dismissing it as inconsequential nor demonizing it as inherently anti-feminist Quite simply, this book is an excellent and accessible introduction to the intersection between Third Wave feminism and fashion theory Highly recommended. CHOICE
Think of this book as your contemporary style guide. With wit and verve, these fine thinkers redress fashion as a force both frivolous and profound, offering the kind of intelligent, entertaining analysis that transcends trendiness. Topics vary widely think: baby bumps, little-girl looks, steampunk, colonial chic, feminism, fur, emirati couture. The result is an elegant mix-and-match that brings thoughtful consideration to everyday issues (like getting dressed!), while deepening understanding of our sartorial worlds. Deborah Siegel, author of Sisterhood, Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild
From indie brides to Islamic abayas to emo-hipster style, Fashion Talks speaks volumes about the sophistication of contemporary feminist scholarship. Its essays bring together a wide range of different, occasionally divergent perspectives on how style has been applied, critiqued, analyzed, and of course donned for political ends, in ways that encourage readers to truly reconsider the popular slogan This is what a feminist looks like. This book is an invaluable source of new scholarship on the subject that will have tremendous appeal to those interested in gender studies, popular culture, and their sartorial expression. Maria Elena Buszek, author of Pin-Up Grrrls: Feminism, Sexuality, Popular Culture"
