Description - The Rise of Fashion by Daniel Leonhard Purdy
Writing more than a century before Vogue, no less a figure than G. W. F. Hegel reviewed the fashion of his day and found it wanting because, in becoming outmoded so quickly, it drew attention away from the timeles beauty of the human form. For more than 250 years, social thinkers have considered fashion - its transitive nature, the conformity it inspires, the vast range of its influence - as a defining feature of modern life.
