Fashion and Identity

There’s a fabulous line early on in The Devil Wears Prada:

“Fashion is not about utility. An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity.”

 I’ve been thinking of analysing this film (along with the TV series “Desperate Housewives”) to add to some workI did in 2005 – “Discourses of Desire in Sex and the City” – about gender, discourse, textuality, feminine identities and the body, in preparation for a conference about semiotics at the end of the year. Well, that is my excuse for watching the movie and all the DVD extras several times over anyway 🙂
