Description


Clothing is the most personal expression of a culture. Objects of dress and adornment reveal so much about the individuals who wore them and the cultures and times in which they lived. History, art, technology, psychology, culture, social systems, customs--all are reflected in people's clothing. Countless treasures exist in clothing and textile collections across the U.S., but until now no comprehensive directory to the collections was 04 Activeable. Clothing and Textile Collections in the United States is the first guide to list information on more than 2,600 American collections. Included in each listing are location and contact information, and many listings also offer a brief description of the collection. This guide is essential for museum directors, costume studies professionals, and librarians, as well as anyone interested in clothing and textile history.
