An invitation to add to this growing collection of material stories.
All submissions welcome.
Inspired by Charles Darwin's nephew, George Darwin's 1872 paper "Development in Dress", this online collection is part of a research project to create "biographies in dress" where clothes are read as biographies of gender, social climate, biological development, geographic location, personal change and cultural evolution.
Please email images (300dpi, max 7cm x 5cm) of four cherished garments (being worn or not) with details of age at wearing, description of the garment, geographic location, year and top 3 reasons for wearing it that day/that year.
