A Study of Literary Characters Who Knew How to Dress Up


Fashion and Literature are two primarily different mediums though they do intersect each other and deviate in their own historic and contemporary times. Fashion in fiction is explanatory, illuminating, symbolic and full of visualization. Some of the best scenes in the literature are braced with fashion. It is assumed that fashion is only about clothing and although it can be considered true to some extent, fashion is far more complex and inclusive. Fashion has been intrinsically connected to leisure for centuries – especially through mediums such as the literature and theatre. This paper discusses the classic icons and muses from the world of literature who continue to catalyze as inspiration in the fashion world. This paper is based on review of literature and takes a case study approach. It is observed that fashion and literature both offer shape, structure and guide each other. This study extents to apprise the iconoclasts that were first fashioned with a pen.
