Events organised by costume and textile societies with close links with the Costume Society
A scholarly publication presenting current research into contemporary and historic dress.
Promoting the study of all aspects of clothing and textiles, the Society aims to encourage access to costume history, including contemporary dress. Our appeal is wide-ranging and object-based. Our members include academics, collectors, curators, designers, re-enactors, students and informed enthusiasts across the world. What we have in common is our wish to provide the best and most varied opportunities to study this fascinating topic.
We are a lively, friendly organisation whose aim is to promote the study and preservation of historic and contemporary dress.
Funding of the Society is by subscription and donation. Your donations are welcome!
