History of 20th-century Fashion

Order Description

Research sources: – definitions
Find your definitions using published costume dictionaries, glossaries from
costume histories, regular dictionaries, and the like. Sometimes there will be
more than one possible definition; if so, please opt for the one you think is most
likely to be the best definition given the period context (in other words, for a
class about the 20th century, look for a 20th century definition). Because the
quality of costume terminology to be found on the internet varies wildly and is
often poor, please use the net as a source of definitions only after you have
already consulted print sources. Wikipedia is not an acceptable source.
I encourage you to consult more than one source for each definition, since often
the sources disagree. You may combine definitions you find into one of your
own if you like.

Guidelines for vocabulary lists–Updated
The vocabulary for historic dress is challenging, even when the past is not so far
distant. It changes, often radically, over time and from place to place part of the
key to understanding the sources for historic dress is having a command of what
people called their clothes in the period you’re looking at. Every other week, I
will give you two vocabulary lists from the period we are studying at the time,
usually containing 10 words each, and ask you to define them by looking the
words up in specialist dictionaries in the course of the week following. Lists are
due at the beginning of class the week following. Please submit them
electronically; Moodle is preferred.
