Costume Society Ambassadors

As an Ambassador you play a key role in supporting the Society’s mission and have the opportunity to attend Costume Society events, share your passions, grow your network and create content for our social media platforms.

The Ambassador programme has been created to aid students and early career professionals. Our ambassador alumni are now working across various fields at establishments such as the Historic Royal Palaces. 

We typically have ten ambassadors who have traditionally been UK-based but we are keen to expand our network and vision. 

Ambassadors also have access to our journal Costume, our member's magazine The Thread and complimentary membership. 

For those already experienced in this field, we recommend becoming a member of the Costume Society, joining one of our committees (such as the programming and events committee) and becoming a mentor to our ambassadors.
