Fashion History On


Last month, The New York Times announced Europeana Fashion: a digital gallery of “700,000 fashion-related elements” that celebrate European fashion history. Excuse me while I lift my jaw off the floor…

The site debuts May 2 (start the countdown!) & will include “a 1921 embroidered dress by Madeleine Vionnet [&] a Diana Vreeland letter to the designer Emilio Pucci.” Eventually, there will be about 24 million objects on the site. 24 MILLION. That’s enough eye candy to last us until our next promotion. Take a look at the site now: there’s plenty of cool info on the project & ongoing events. If you’re looking to start learning now, follow @EurFashion
