Description

What effect does the lack of inclusion of a particular style have on the social and personal identity of someone it excludes?

Drawing from personal experience, author Elizabeth Kealy-Morris explores how the back brace that her scoliosis required excluded her from the socially accepted preppy style of her community, and the effect it had on the way she interacted with her peers. Not Fitting In examines themes of group identity, exclusion, and belonging through style and fashion.

This book is ideal reading for students of Fashion Studies, Disability Studies, Fashion Psychology, and Cultural Anthropology.
