Fashion Industry: A Resource Guide

General Resources

We have tried to include books, directories, and other resources for those studying the industry as well as things shed light on the industry. Given the length of time it takes to publish books and the fact that fashion and the industry is constantly evolving, it is important to supplement books with trade literature and other sources as a way to keep up-to-date.

The following materials link to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. Links to online resources are included when available.

Internet Articles

The links to articles below are just a selection, there are many newer and other sources.  I have tried to include those that touch on topics mentioned in the A Few Things to Consider page. Additional Internet research as well as searching full-text databases will be important to find substantive discussions on more nebulous ideas and emerging trends.
