‘In her book The Language of Clothes, Alison Lurie states, “Long before I am near enough to talk to you on the street, in a meeting, or at a party, you announce your sex, age and class to me through what you are wearing - and very possibly give me important information (or misinformation) as to your occupation, origin, personality, opinions, tastes, sexual desires and current mood.” (1981a, 3).

Each time we get dressed, we are choosing the clothes that will send a message to all those with whom we come in contact.’
