About the Author

Susan Ingram coordinates York University's European Studies Programme. Katrina Sark is a PhD student in the Department of German Studies, McGill University.


"While German literary scholars and costume historians have produced numerous fascinating studies on the topic, fashion buffs outside of the German-speaking realm have rarely paid attention to Berlin as a center of fashion. Ingram and Sark's book is thus filling an important gap in our awareness of fashion in Berlin as a major aesthetic and sociopolitical phenomenon of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In its scope and ambition, this is a pioneering study with a comprehensive approach to the various aspects of public life that have constituted historically Berlin's distinctive position on the international fashion scene. Berliner Chic offers a wealth of theoretical references, a historical framework, and a rich bibliography, as well as plenty of charming anecdotes, engaging stories, and ample photographs. One can imagine the reader packing this book before a trip to Berlin and using it as an alternative travel guide."--Mila Ganeva "Worn Through" (6/1/2011 12:00:00 AM)
