Clothing has a long history of attracting academic interest, drawing upon a wide variety of disciplines including social science, psychology, anthropology, art, history, cultural and communication studies. In so doing, this signposts that clothing functions beyond physiological needs, that is, more than merely protection from the cold, rain and sunshine.
It is well established that clothing serves all of the following: adornment, expression of individuality, construction of identity, a means of communicating social worth, economic status and enactment of cultural meaning.
