From the editorial:
The ZMJ 9.2 issue—edited by Wessie Ling, Mariella Lorusso, and Simona Segre Reinach, is devoted to the analysis of different aspects of fashion globalization in our time. Globalization presents ambiguities and contradictions, especially evident when it comes to fashion, an area in which the interplay between global and local is particularly intense.
The issue includes nine contributions focusing on specific sectors, places and themes of fashion globalization, as evident in the practices and ideas of different subjects and from different parts of the world. The presence of anthropologists among the authors of the issue confirms how much a cultural analysis of the economic and aesthetic processes of global fashion is necessary.
