Digitization Projects: European Online Fashion Archive To Launch in May, a Europeana Project

From Vogue UK:

A public archive of Europe’s extensive fashion history will soon become available from May 2 with the launch of a website called Cultural institutions from 12 different countries – including London’s Victoria and Albert Museum and Paris’ Les Arts Décoratifs – will provide artefacts for the online project which will feature 100,000 digital elements.

More from the International Herald Tribune:

The project is an offshoot of Europeana, the five-year-old online digital library that showcases images of about 24 million cultural artifacts, including the Mona Lisa and the Gutenberg Bible.

Once the site is fully ready, organizers say, users will be able to search the archives by date, designer, item or keyword. A click on a particular image will bring up a detailed view and more information, as well as more images, if available.
