Redressing the Past, Tailoring the Present, Fashioning the Future
The fifth chapter begins with a consideration of bespoke tailor, menswear designer, and global fashion icon Ozwald Boateng in order to simultaneously think about the historicity of fashion and the commodified “branding” of the past. The chapter contrasts Boateng’s carefully cultivated public persona with another fashionable icon, Yinka Shonibare MBE, an artist best known for refashioning aristocratic dress of the eighteenth and nineteenth-century in African batik.
