The first issue of the Costume Journal for 2008 carries an extraordinary Fashion and Historic Costume Resource List!

The text (sharing space with some photos) covers nearly 17 of the total 36 inside pages of this largest issue ever; that makes this record a very comprehensive list of fashion resources throughout Canada, plus many more resources, including internationally.

The list was compiled as a reference tool for a special Fashion Issue (issue 38) of the literary magazine Descant in the spring of 2007, and is reprinted in this Costume Journal. The extensive compilation is the work of Barbara Rice (Registration Coordinator, the ROM (also CSO Vice Chair), and Suzanne McLean, Collections Manager, the Bata Shoe Museum (also CSO Publications Coordinator and editor of the Costume Journal).

Descant is a quarterly journal of international acclaim which publishes the work of a wide variety of writers and visual artists, with some special issues with a single focus, Issue 38 focused on the theme of Fashion, leading readers into understanding fashion from the literary perspective. To back order a copy, visit their website (see Links page), or call Descant at 416-593-2557.

If the list is your main interest, look for more information on the Publications page, and then enjoy all that CSO offers, including this bumper issue of the Costume Journal, by going to the Membership page.
