Product Description


"This book extends the important work Angela McRobbie has done over the past decades in studying young women's subcultures and popular women's magazines to help feminize British cultural studies. The book is instructive not only about the struggles of young women to become 'new cultural workers' under the Thatcherite regime of enterprise culture, but also about the relative strengths and weaknesses of a type of social analysis whose growing popularity poses a challenge to disciplinary sociology."-- Mark Jacobs, "American Journal of Sociology

Hard Working 14 April 2000
By - Published on
Format: Paperback
I never realised that entering fashion industry takes so much hard working, it's not as romantic as I imagined. Excellent book because author interviewed many young designers who works in this field, I enjoy it very much.
