Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body & Culture is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by Bloomsbury Publications. It was established in 1997 and covers the study of fashion, including aspects from sociology, art history, consumption studies, and anthropology. In the first editorial, the founding editor-in-chief Valerie Steele stated that the journal approaches fashion "as the cultural construction of the embodied identity". The journal does not only investigate issues of body in society but it also includes studies on practices of production, dissemination, and consumption of dress.In addition, it includes reviews of exhibitions and academic publications.
