Summary "From Christian Dior to Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen, many of the greatest fashion designers of the past century have been gay. Indeed, as early as the eighteenth century, fashion and style were central to the emerging gay subculture. This important and fascinating book transforms our understanding of fashion history by acknowledging the historic contributions of LGBTQ people, examining both high fashion and street style as sites of gay cultural production, and demonstrating the centrality of gay culture to the creation of modern fashion"--Dust jacket flap.
