Fashion and Costume Vocabulary

I think I remember the SIG members talking about costume vocabulary, but I don’t remember who or what.  Arden Kirkland is trying to bring together everyone who has made, or is interested in making, an authority list of costume terms.  We had a useful discussion at Costume Society of America Symposium last week, and I promised to make the connection.  Please reply here and I will gather it all up and pass it along.

  3. The FIT Library has a libguide for subject terms including many costume terms. Mostly Library of Congress terms with some local headings. Check the tabs for Fashion & Costume, Needlework & textiles, Textiles, Apparel Industry, Beauty, and Jewelry. http://fitnyc.libguides.com/c.php?g=66302&p=427892
