We have so many places to research historical fashion--this is FIT, after all!--where to begin? Here's a research guide we've created, Fashion and Clothing History.

Books:

  • StyleCat lists all the books, DVDs and e-books we have
    • TIP: Search the phrase clothing and dress (or accessories, jewelry, shoes, or footwear ) along with the time period (e.g. 17th century) and/or the name of a country or culture (e.g. France)
  • Browse through a list of costume history books
  • Search our e-book collections (FIT user name and password required)

Articles : through FIT Library databases (FIT user name and password required)
