“FASHION FOR EVERYONE”
 
Has the fashion world indeed “democratized” itself in the past years? Where exclusivity was once the rule, where images of models defined the ideal of beauty, and the power of designers counted as incontestable, it is now—not least in the times of a continuing crisis—the much-read fashion blogs, for example, that, apparently independent of the old authorities of fashion critique, proclaim and circulate the new trends “from the street”, allegedly making stylists and model agencies superfluous and defining looks beyond the dictate of the big fashion houses or corporations. The interviews and essays in this issue seek to critically assess this state of affairs in a historical perspective.
 
Plus reviews from Berlin, New York, Vienna, Rome, Munich, Paris, Basel, Cologne, Frankfurt/M., Aachen
