‘Clothing on Paper’

Conference 2021: Clothing on Paper

The 2021 Costume Society conference will be held online and it is hoped that many more of our members and followers, nationally and internationally will be able to join us this year.

The theme of the 2021 conference pays tribute to Ann Saunders MBE FSA (1931-2019), former Editor of Costume and celebrates the huge contribution she made to The Costume Society.

The conference celebrates the relationships between clothing and paper and we will hear from leading academics, creatives, students and industry professionals as we explore the multiple ways paper connects with the world of costume.

Taking place online across 2 Saturdays and 2 Wednesdays over June and July 2021 all conference papers and events will be presented in live interactive sessions. Final dates and timings to be announced.

The Costume Society conference is open to non-members.
