A QUEER HISTORY OF FASHION: FROM THE CLOSET TO THE CATWALK
Resurrection Vintage is excited to present A Queer History Of Fashion: From The Closet To The Catwalk, by Jonathan D. Katz. This provocative book looks at the history of fashion through a queer lens, examining high fashion as a site of gay cultural production and exploring the aesthetic sensibilities and unconventional dress of LGBTQ people, especially since the 1950s, to demonstrate the centrality of gay culture to the creation of modern fashion. This book is highly collectible and currently out-of-print. All copies are "new-old stock" that have been stored and maintain original cellophane wrapping, and are in excellent "new old stock" vintage condition.
From Christian Dior to Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, many of the greatest fashion designers of the past century have been gay. Fashion and style have played an important role within the LGBTQ community, as well, even as early as the 18th century. This provocative book looks at the history of fashion through a queer lens, examining high fashion as a site of gay cultural production and exploring the aesthetic sensibilities and unconventional dress of LGBTQ people, especially since the 1950s, to demonstrate the centrality of gay culture to the creation of modern fashion.
Contributions by some of the worlds most acclaimed scholars of gay history and fashion including Christopher Breward, Shaun Cole, Vicki Karaminas, Jonathan D. Katz, Peter McNeil, and Elizabeth Wilson investigate topics such as the context in which key designers lives and works form part of a broader gay history; the archeology of queer attire back to the homosexual underworld of 18th-century Europe; and the influence of LGBTQ subcultural styles from the trouser suits worn by Marlene Dietrich (which inspired Yves Saint Laurents Le Smoking) to the iconography of leather. Sumptuous illustrations include both fashion photography and archival imagery.
