We are delighted to announce a new subscription to the Bloomsbury Fashion Photography Archive. This fantastic visual resource is a sister to the Berg Fashion Library which we have had for a while now.
Bloomsbury Fashion Photography Archive is an online resource containing more than 750,000 newly-digitized and high-quality runway, backstage, and street style images, curated by Editor in Chief Valerie Steele, Director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York.
An extensive collection of fashion photographs, for use by students and educators, the archive includes images of international runway shows from the 1970s until the early 2000s, from over 400 designers; key collections from McQueen, Gaultier, Westwood, Chalayan, Galliano, etc; rare backstage and front row shots from fashion shows of the past forty years; and street-style images from global fashion cities. The Archive’s index and interactive time line allow students to compare and trace trends, designers, and seasons.
You can access the Bloomsbury Fashion Photography Archive via the library databases A-Z webpage, or through the library “databases by subject” webpage for Art and Design.
We hope you will find this a useful resource for sourcing fashion and costume inspiration and context.
