The winter edition of Index on Censorship magazine, Fashion Rules –
Dressing to oppress: why dress codes and freedom clash, looks at how fashion is a fundamental part of freedom of expression. Models Lily Cole and Daphne Selfe discuss why changes in society are reflected in the clothes we (are allowed) to wear, while Maggie Alderson, former editor of Elle, tells her own story of being arrested as a punk rocker in the 1970s. Eliza Vitri Handayani reports on how punks are still persecuted in Indonesia.
