is a book that is unlike any other I have ever read. The authors are listed as Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, Leah Shapton & 639 others. Yes, that is 639 other women including writers, activists and artists. Women in Clothes is based on a survey of more than 50 questions that was designed to provoke thought and discussion about some of the deeper reasoning and the broader impact of the clothing we choose to wear everyday. The answers reveal the complexity of style decisions and demonstrate how even our most basic clothing choices are the tools we use to re-create ourselves and the way others see us.
