The many fashion fetishes that I, and many people I know harbor are far too numerous to list here, but we will soon have a book that may explain why and how these obsessions developed. Fetishism in Fashion, written by Lidewij Edelkoort, is a photo and essay collection exploring why some women will risk life and limb to teeter on an impossibly high heel and why a certain style of handbag, belt or other fashion object can bring on a sudden case of the vapors. I am personally looking forward to reading the chapters explaining the power of the color black and how our tastes evolve from birth to childhood. We all do it- come September 10, we can finally hope to understand why.
