Type of Research: Book Section
Creators: McDowell, Felice

From artist to curator, couturier to fashion blogger, architect to designer, the creative industries hold an allure that is unmistakably in fashion . So, what are the sources of validation and legitimation that have worked to uphold this status, past and present? How do the identities of creative professionals contribute to this? Fashioning Professionals considers professional identities in creative industries as social practices, enacted, performed and negotiated through the media, public institutions and professional organizations. It examines how this mediation has shaped the co-construction of identities and personas, exploring how professional identities and representations within the creative industries are both fashioned and self-fashioned.
