“Look!! I’M Not the Same Person !” the Role of Clothing in Consumers Escapism

While literature has extensively studied the relationship between clothing and social identity, this paper explores the role of clothing in escapism where consumers lose their identity. Results show that consumers use clothing to lose their identity, to escape from their everyday life and to enter the ritual experience community.
