Price in white on verso left corner. As Executive Director at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Richard Martin, wrote of clothing and fabric more as an art critic than as a fashion historian. A confident writer and intellectually rigorous, Martin edited and published the small magazine, "Textile & Text", showcasing very specific, in-depth articles that exposed fashion as a manufactured art form that begins simply with thread and fabric.Essay subject matter includes the history of Drag culture and fashion, the history of the T-Shirt, the House of Paquin and the history of swimwear and underwear and the definition of male style. Includes essays by another giant in the field of fashion history, Harold Koda. Essential for any stylish student of fashion and history.
