Controversial social philosopher Lipovetsky draws on the history of fashion to demonstrate that the modern cult of appearance and superficiality actually serves the common good. Bounding across 2,000 years of history, he shows how the evolution of fashion from an upper-class privilege into a vehicle of popular expression closely follows the rise of democratic values.
