WGS 301 - Fashion, Sex and the City

What is fashion? Is it just about clothing and appearances? How does fashion relate to material culture, art, politics, ideology? How has Italy contributed to the development of the fashion system? What is the origin of the “Made in Italy” and how did it transform the country into a global economic powerhouse? In order to answer these questions, “Fashion, Sex and the City” explores the development of fashion in Italy between the 14th and the 21st centuries, highlighting the links between clothing, gender and urban development; appearance, eroticism and morality; the fashion industry, national identity and globalization.
