Annotation Fashion and the imagery surrounding it give us a vision of Western culture that is both enticing and alienating. It flaunts capitalism's euphoric emblems of glamour and success but it also represents the underside of modern life, with violence and decay becoming a theme dominating clothing design and photography. This provocative book sets examples from a diverse range of designers and photographers in their cultural and historical context in order to unravel the contradictory emotions of desire and anxiety they provoke.
