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.
- 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)
- JSTOR, for scholarly articles
- General OneFile or MasterFILE Premier for articles from a wider variety of sources
