This timely book explores the recent popularity of fashion in museums and its wider impact on the field. It is organized into three subjects: museums entering into fashion, controversy surrounding the nature of the fashion exhibition where essentially the human body is on display and lastly the practice of fashion in museums. Each chapter is written as a case study by authors with great experience in museum scholarship and curation including: Harold Koda & Jessica Glasscock of the Costume Institute, Julia Petrov of Alberta College of Art and Design and Rosemary Harden of The Fashion Museum in Bath, UK. (Costume Society of America)
