Promoting the study of all aspects of clothing and textiles, the Society aims to encourage access to costume history, including contemporary dress. Our appeal is wide-ranging and object-based. Our members include academics, collectors, curators, designers, re-enactors, students and informed enthusiasts across the world. What we have in common is our wish to provide the best and most varied opportunities to study this fascinating topic.
We are a lively, friendly organisation whose aim is to promote the study and preservation of historic and contemporary dress.
Funding of the Society is by subscription and donation. Your donations are welcome!
