The University of Brighton Dress History Teaching Collection aims to offer all students and staff at the University of Brighton direct access to closely examine and photograph historical and world fabrics and garments while encouraging the use of the collection within material culture research. We will be sharing more detailed descriptions of the materials within the collection and case studies of these materials, as well as important information about copyright.

Our collection is stored in the Pavillion Parade, School of Humanities, in Room 404. The artefacts are either stored in dated/themed boxes or hung on rails, also in themed and dated order. To access our collection, please contact

Curator: Prof. Emerita Lou Taylor
