Description:
In this classic analysis of fashion, sociologist Rene Koning draws from a number of strains of thought to argue that fashion behavior is mainly the psychology of motivation and that people are hardwired to be curious, inquisitive, and attracted to newness. Author Tom Wolfe contributes an introduction about fashion and the code language of status.
