About the Author

Efrat Tseelon was appointed Professor of Fashion Theory at the University of Leeds, in 2007 and is the founder and Principal Editor of Critical Studies in Fashion & Beauty since 2010. As a cultural theorist with marketing and organizational industry experience she has published widely. Since receiving her Ph.D. from Oxford in social psychology entitled 'Communicating via Clothing' (1989) she has been developing an innovative approach to fashion research which she calls Critical Fashion Studies that she applied to many topics from gender, fashion ethics and popular culture, to the school uniform and the traditional carpet. She pioneered the study of 'inside view' (the wearers) over the 'outside view' (designers, museums) which was prevalent in research on fashion before, and she developed the perspective of wardrobe research (focused on wearing everyday clothes) over the stereotype approach (which privileges occasion garments). Tseelon has also pioneered a research approach which is rooted in historical and theoretical frameworks but draws on several fields to ground its claims with empirical work from a number of fields: a synthesis of qualitative and quantitative research, discursive approaches, the uncanny method, and techniques derived from problem-based learning.
