LIM College, New York City, NY
The Adrian G. Marcuse Library at LIM College is pleased to announce the sixth annual Fashion: Now & Then Conference, a three-day conference in which participants will discuss the past, present, and future uses of fashion information and art in fashion. Participants will be drawn from the fashion industry, libraries, archives, academic institutions, publishers, collectors, and museums to represent a full range of expertise.
The theme for this year’s Fashion: Now & Then Conference is Fashion as Art. The conference will host presenters and artists that will demonstrate how fashion information and art in fashion have evolved through time and how it will continue to evolve in the future. Presentation topics and artworks will include one or more of these subjects in relation to fashion or style: archives, blogs, books, business, collection development, digital archives, digital collections, digitization projects, ephemera, fashion forecasting, fashion history, fashion studies, film, libraries, magazines, marketing, material culture, merchandising, museums, new media, oral history, patrons, photography, preservation, print & non-print media, product development, rare books, retail, social media, special collections, textiles, and trend reporting.
The event will take place in the LIM College Townhouse (12 E. 53rd Street between Fifth & Madison Avenues) from Thursday, October 20 – Saturday, October 22, 2016.
