Whilst traipsing through the internets this morning, I came across an interesting series of articles by Elizabeth Cline on the Etsy blog today about the history of fashion and consumption. She’s got a book coming out on June 14th: Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion. Her articles are a good read, and I’m really curious to read her book. I’ll report back when I do.
If you decide to gallivant off down that rabbit trail, you should also check out “We can make it in the USA, but will we buy it?” by Claire Gordon on AOL Jobs. (She quotes Cline for part of it.)
