I found this link in an entry in the May 2013 issue of Threads. Didn’t every remember seeing it before but thoroughly enjoyed checking the site out. Hopefully it can be of help to students and experts alike. Membership is not required to use the general resources (but librarians and instructors might find it of use). The primary uses I can see for students are the Vintage Fabric identification resource and the Designer Label collection (both under VFG Resources tab). The site also has a blog, a forum and a fashion history section.
