The Association administers the Elizabeth Hammond, Kathy Callow and Daphne Bullard awards and was registered as a charity on 1 April 2016

Elizabeth Hammond Award

The Elizabeth Hammond award was set up in 2015 and is funded by The Costume Society, following a bequest from the estate of the late Elizabeth Hammond (1926-2011) a founder member of The Costume Society and a former trustee. She was a graduate of the Royal College of Art, a teacher, embroiderer, artist, and a collector of costume. Significant pieces in her collection were conserved and loaned for public display. The award promotes the conservation and preparation for display of clothing including clothing-related textiles, of all periods, styles, and places of origin, held in the permanent collections of museums within the United Kingdom with an annual turnover of about £750,000. This award is intended to assist with the costs of a wide range of conservation projects, including preliminary assessments, as well as the labour and materials for conservation work. About £5000 is available annually for these awards and application may be made throughout the year.
