Fashion History at Your Fingertips: Celebrate at the Library on April 5, 2011!


Overhead Expense., Digital ID 824466, New York Public Library Oxford University Press has launched its award-winning database, the Berg Fashion Library, and I'm so happy to have at my fingertips this comprehensive online resource that offers integrated text, image, and journal content on world dress and fashion. From the history of the corset to the beads of Mauritania, this database has it all, and I'm guessing that there are lots of you out there who will love the Berg Fashion Library too.  If you want to find out more, please come to the Library on April 5th because the launch party's happening at the Library and you're invited! 

The party will include a demo of the database and a reception, and the event will feature Ada Calhoun, co-author of two books with Tim Gunn (Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible and Gunn’s Golden Rules: Life’s Little Lessons for Making It Work), and Kathryn Earle, Managing Director of the Berg Fashion Library.
