Abstract

As clothing is a tool to express oneself and considered as an extended self to show one’s identity (Ahuvia, 2005), understanding the meaning of possessions related to clothing for children in the foster care homes can help us develop and provide necessary products or programs. Therefore, this study is designed to understand clothing selection motivations and the meaning of possessions for children in foster care homes.
