Description

This paper presents results from an exploratory study investigating choices that two teachers made about what they wore to work and the meanings they made of their fashion choices. In other words, the study examined how teachers fashioned a sense of themselves as teachers through the use of fashion itself. The presentation will be relevant to teachers, administrators, and teacher educators. In a cultural moment in which current public discourse is increasingly image-driven and image-saturated, this study may also appeal to a wider audience.
