Fashion History Timeline Kickoff Event
February 13 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
FIT’s School of Liberal Arts and professors Justine De Young and Lourdes Font invite the public to a the kickoff of the Fashion History Timeline, an open-access source for fashion history knowledge, featuring objects and artworks from over 100 museums and libraries that span the globe. The timeline website offers well-researched, accessibly written entries on specific artworks, with focused overviews of periods and styles.
Started as a pilot project by art history faculty and students in the fall of 2015, the timeline aims to be an important contribution to public knowledge about the history of fashion and seeks to serve as a constantly growing and evolving resource not only for students and faculty, but also for the wider world of those interested in fashion and dress history—from the Renaissance scholar to the simply curious.
