About the Author
Author Jessica Glasscock is currently obsessing over 1980s New York avant-garde designers and the glorious triumph of gothness in contemporary culture. This is in no way related to a youth spent alone in her bedroom applying black eyeliner and listening to The Cure. Jessica denies such a youth ever took place. What she can confirm is that she is a writer, researcher, and college instructor currently residing in the Riverdale area of the Bronx. The author of Striptease: From Gaslight to Spotlight (2003), American Fashion Accessories (2008), and Making a Spectacle (2021), she also worked as a researcher and education liaison for The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for over a decade. An instructor at Parsons School of Design since 2003 and sometime consulting fashion historian for VFILES digital archive, Jessica is primarily devoted to becoming a professional bon vivant. While she loves to write and teach, she hopes to be remembered for being clever at dinner.
