This unique ethnographic investigation examines the role that fashion plays in the production of the contemporary Indian luxury aesthetic. Tracking luxury Indian fashion from its production in village craft workshops via upmarket design studios to fashion soirees, Kuldova investigates the Indian luxury fashion market's dependence on the production of thousands of artisans all over India, revealing a complex system of hierarchies and exploitation.

In recent years contemporary Indian design has dismissed the influence of the West and has focussed on the opulent heritage luxury of the maharajas, Gulf monarchies and the Mughal Empire.Luxury Indian Fashion argues that the desire for a luxury aesthetic has become a significant force in the attempt to define contemporary Indian society. From the cultivation of erotic capital in businesswomen's dress to a discussion of masculinity and muscular neo-royals to staged designer funerals, Luxury Indian Fashion analyzes the production, consumption and aesthetics of luxury and power in India.

Luxury Indian Fashion is essential reading for students of fashion history and theory, anthropology and visual culture.


The International Politics Of Fashion

RRP $254.99

This book seeks to address and fill a puzzling omission in contemporary critical IR scholarship. Following on from the aesthetic turn in IR, critical and 'postmodern' IR has produced an impressive array of studies into movies, literature, music and art and the way these media produce, mediate, and represent international politics. By contrast, the proponents of the aesthetic turn have consistently overlooked and ignored fashion as a source of knowledge about global politics.

Yet stories about the political role of fashion abound in the news media. In Afghanistan, the terror of the Taliban regime and the plight of women was illustrated by reference to the burqa that women are supposedly forced to wear there. In Sudan, recently a female writer and activist successfully challenged the government over her right to wear trousers in public. In Europe, the debate on women's headscarves has politicised a garment item and turned it into a symbol of fundamentalism and oppression. In the war on terror, orange jumpsuits are used on both sides to dehumanise and mark the figure of the 'detainee'. Yet the politics of fashion go beyond these examples of the uses and abuses of textiles and fabrics for political purposes, extending into its very 'grammar' and vocabulary.

The contributions to this book will investigate the politics of fashion from a variety of perspectives, addressing theoretical as well as empirical issues, establishing the critical study of fashion and its protagonists as a central contribution to the aesthetic turn in international politics.

This work will be a unique contribution to the field and will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, critical IR theory and popular culture and world politics.

Dressing for success is part of an everyday reality for all women in all walks of life. When faced with the overwhelming array of clothes offered in large stores, one is often besieged by self-doubt and in need of a strong hand to help develop that elusive quality called taste.

Enter Secrets of a Fashion Therapist from renowned Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper Betty Halbreich, who has dressed everyone from 12-year olds and their young mothers to media stars and grand dames. Sharing her impeccable, on-target fashion sense, Betty dispenses wisdom, humor, and advice on how to enhance natural beauty, build a more confident self-image, and most of all, have more fun getting dressed.

Betty first gives the reader a privileged look into the fashion world by taking her on a walk through Bergdorf Goodman, the famed specialty store. Along the way, Betty will explain how to shop like a professional in an enormous store (especially where the clothes seem too pricey, and the sales associates too haughty), deal with the limits of the ubiquitous dressing room, most effectively use a personal shopper, and utilize the general sales force of a specialty store.

With tips, magnificent pen-and-ink drawings, and tried-and-true methods that have remained infallible since the book's initial printing in 1997, Secrets of a Fashion Therapist teaches readers how to dress for all settings, from the workplace to cocktail hour to walking your dog. While broadening readers' attitudes towards fashion, Betty Halbreich will help women create a tasteful wardrobe that has "you" written all over it.

Women's Rights In The Workplace

RRP $12.99

It is an unfortunate reality that, in the US, not all men are considered equal, especially when one of those men is a woman. Feminist theory and action may have carried us far, but it hasn't yet carried us far enough. The age-old problem persists: Women simply are not treated the same way as men in the American workforce. Women on average get paid thirty percent less than the men working across from them on the assembly lines, are sexually harassed by their supervisors and managers, get fired when they take time off from work to give birth to and nourish children and, there's not a whole lot we can do about it. Or is there? At best, the above types of practices are merely unlawful. At worst, they are downright illegal. In either case, they may provide the aggrieved with a viable cause of action against the person or entity so blatantly offending our nation's women and disregarding their rights in the workplace-but only a qualified attorney can determine if a cause of action exists and whether or not it is practical to pursue it. A co-founding partner of the New York boutique law firm of Tuckner, Sipser, Weinstock & Sipser, LLP, who has zealously represented clients for more than three decades, Jack Tuckner is, indeed, a qualified attorney. But, in his three-part series, Women's Rights in the Workplace, Tuckner does not commit himself to readers as an attorney to a client. Rather, he acts more like a reporter, whose duty is not to advise but to inform his readers. In each of the three books in the Women's Rights in the Workplace series, Tuckner presents resources, opinions, and information designed to educate readers on the facts, legal issues, and applicable laws surrounding some of the chief concerns women face in the modern, albeit outmoded, American workplace. The first installment in the series focuses on something that is illegal in every state in the union, but is still thriving in workplaces all across the country-pregnancy discrimination. Women's Rights in the Workplace: Pregnancy Discrimination is a guide to help answer the frequently asked questions regarding pregnancy and your workplace rights, addressing issues such as identifying pregnancy discrimination at play; understanding pregnancy as a protected status; the best way to inform your employer that you are pregnant; and applying for maternity leave. It goes on to confront post-pregnancy issues, including expressing breast milk at work and your employer's obligation to treat you as a temporarily disabled employee should you suffer any complications or impairments related to pregnancy and/or childbirth. Tuckner's text is a direct, easy-to-follow statement of rights to which any working woman can turn for a concise presentation of what she needs to know if working while pregnant. It's a book that readers will want to share with mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, and girlfriends, to equip them with the tools to ensure that their careers are not adversely affected by employers who look at pregnancy as an inconvenience. Don't let your employer deceive you regarding your rights while pregnant. Don't think you just have to put up with negative treatment; and, please, don't ever think the fact that you are with child is reasonable cause for your boss to fire you. You do have rights-and Women's Rights in the Workplace: Pregnancy Discrimination can help you understand them. Upcoming installments in the Women's Rights in the Workplace series include guides on sexual harassment and pay disparity.
