Overview

This Book, the sister publication to The study of dress history, is the first to detail the history of the collection, exhibition and museum interpretation of dress of all kinds. It examines the earliest European developments in dress history from the mid-sixteenth century onwards, and explains the interest in dress collection and display both privately and in museums in Britain, France, the USA and central and eastern Europe.

Lou Taylor details the central role played by women curators of dress within the establishment of dress collections and displays in museums of decorative arts, ethnography and social history. Chapters include discussions of the history and present-day practice of museum dress display; the politicisation of dress collections at specific historical moments, particularly in central Europe from the 1890s onwards; current curatorial positions on the care and return of sacred objects; the place of contemporary fashion within museums today; and issues of the commodification of collections and exhibitions. This fascinating book will interest the general reader with a broad interest in dress history as well as undergraduate and postgraduate students on design, decorative arts, fashion and dress history programmes, and those on museum and gender studies courses.
