June is Fashion Book Month!
This year, the Courtauld’s History of Dress department is celebrating its 50th anniversary. As part of our celebrations, we have collaborated with fashion curator Judith Clark of London College of Fashion to curate a small display Dress Historiography: 500 Years of Fashion Books in the Courtauld showcasing the different books that have shaped the study of dress history from 1598 to the mid-twentieth century.
To coincide with the display the History of Dress, students have declared June Fashion Book Month. We will be sharing our thoughts about the publications on display on the Courtauld’s Documenting Fashion Blog, as well as thoughts on our favourite books and those most influential to our studies on Instagram.
We hope you will join us for our celebration of all things fashion history! See the display outside the Courtauld’s Book Library, read the blog at www.blog.courtauld.ac.uk/documentingfashion and follow us on Instagram @documentingfashion_courtauld
