Of Furs, Finance, and Fashion: Luxury, Leisure, and White-Collar Dressing in African American Print Media During An Era of Opulence

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Siobhan Carter-David, surveys African American magazines in the past 25 years of the post-Civil Rights era and considers the various means by which black Americans have used fashion instruction to foster a middle-class sensibility amongst their readership through the display and promotion of luxury wear, leisure fashions, and occupational dressing, correlating purchasing power with Black economic empowerment, class status, and the possibility of de facto citizenship. Ultimately, this paper will look at the nuances of how this type of fashion direction and marketing targeted African Americans, their departure from more culturally specific concepts of dress, along with evolving notions of respectability and propriety from a historical context to elucidate the ways in which it is a reflection of changes in the social and political fabric of American life.
