1934 - "A psychological analysis of fashion motivation" by Estelle De Young Barr

Published 1934 in New York .

Written in English.

Barr (1934) investigated the diffuseness and intensity of fundamental drives as related to dress: the desire to conform, desire for economy, attitudes related to modesty, desire for comfort, the aesthetic impulse, and desire for self-expression. Her findings indicated that the desire to conform was the most diffuse of the desires measured. Conformity was more effective as a determiner of the time of buying clothing than was the desire for economy. The desire to conform varied with the technical or professional interest of the group.
