I have started this blog as a platform for the students of the FIT’s MA program Fashion & Textile Studies: History, theory, Museum Practice to share and showcase their original research. We post meaningful new research on dress history and fashion studies, as well as interviews and guest posts.
We also post daily links of interests on our facebook page for a continuously growing community of followers
I started Then & Now with the aim to explore the sources of inspiration of contemporary fashion designers, whether conscious or not, and the resulting imagery. By juxtaposing present and past images the blog underlines how fashions evolve and trends reappear
