Happy Birthday 1st Birthday to FashionHistoria! I started this blog as an experiment, to see if a fashion history blog was something that just one person could manage. My idea was to highlight the fashion scholarship, history and activities of California and the West, including film costume history, the interwar years, yarn/craft arts and my other personal interest. Short but personal blog posts with an academic tone, and the occasional book or film review have also been my aim.
Almost 20,000 of you have read something here in the last year (that shocks the pants off of me!). There are a number of exciting projects coming down the pike, and I hope you’ll stick around to read about them. As always, your feedback and comments are encouraged.
Thank you for reading FashionHistoria!
