Description

Fashion - from the $1,500 Prada bag to the $30 knock-off sold on the sidewalk - has been transformed from a commodity reserved for the elite to a powerful presence in mass-market culture. As a society, we are obsessed with fashion and style, racking up credit-card debt to support compulsive shopping habits, scouring magazines for the latest trends to follow, and focusing more on who's wearing what at the Oscars than on who's winning. In Fashion Victim, award-winning journalist Michelle Lee blows the lid off the fashion industry, and spotlights the fascinating - and often disturbing - ways in which it is morphing our culture, our economy, and our values.
