Creators: McDowell, Felice

The visual and textual documentation contained in fashion magazines can be utilized as a valuable primary source for the study of dress, cultures, and associated meanings and values, both past and present. This article discusses processes of history making, specifically addressing the employment of theory in the reading of past fashion media, or “old” glossies, in archival space.
