Summary
"Equal parts fab and frightening, Killer Style explores the ways in which make-up, clothing, and accessories have killed, maimed, or tormented those who wear and make them. From the story of hatters felled by mercury poisoning to tulle-burnt ballerinas to the victims of the modern craze for sandblasted denim, no one is safe from these crimes of fashion."--
Summary
A STEAM-supporting tour of the harmful history of fashion includes profiles of garments, accessories and fabrics that have injured or even killed their wearers, accounts of modern factory accidents and discussions of the issue of workplace safety in the textile and garment industries.
