During the interwar years, a proliferation of violence encroached upon the glossy, idealistic world of fashion: from the curiously common appearance of dismembered heads in fashion illustration, to seemingly torturous techniques and devices advertised by beauty imagery, even extending to garments designed to look assaulted and destroyed.
Danger in the Path of Chic
brings this disturbing imagery to light for the first time, proposing new directions for historians of fashion, violence and culture in the interwar years.
Concentrating on London, Paris and New York as fashion centres and political allies, the volume explores why horror manifested itself in this way, at this time, and in a sphere that is usually perceived as being built on fantasy and escape. In doing so,
Danger in the Path of Chic
situates fashion within the very real social, psychological, economic and political traumas of the period.
