Star Tribune notes publication of Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion

Sara Glassman, writing for the Star Tribune, notes the publication of the ten-volume Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion (2010, Oxford University Press) of which Joanne Eicher (Regents professor emerita, Apparel Design) is the editor-in-chief. Glassman notes that Eicher has been working on the project since 2003.

“Sometimes there are still people who like to look at fashion as superficial. It’s such a narrow point of view,” Eicher tells Glassman. “Everywhere around the world, people dress themselves, use body modifications and body supplements. It’s not just an encyclopedia of clothing.”

A publication presentation and celebration with Eicher and Kathryn Earle, managing director of Berg Publishers, will take place on Friday, October 22, 2010, 4:30-6:30 p.m., in 33 McNeal Hall. The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Free sewing kits will be given away while supplies last.
