About the Book

In Out of Fashion Carol Ann Duffy selects the best and freshest contemporary poets and asks them in turn to select their favourite poem, from another time or culture, which looks at how we dress, or undress, how we cover up or reveal. In these vibrant poems, we are shown how clothes, fashion and jewelry are both a necessary and luxurious, a practical and sensual, a liberating or repressing, part of our lives. The result is a vital and entertaining dialogue between the two arts of poetry and fashion and between poets from the past and the present.
