I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season!! I've finished my first semester of grad school and am hoping to use my break to share all the new fashion history goodness I've learned with all of you!
I get A LOT of e-mails asking how I like my program at NYU and what it's like, so look out for some future posts profiling graduate programs in the field. I'll write about NYU, I'll enlist my FIT graduate friend to write about her experiences, and I think I can track down people who went to Bard and the programs abroad. If you are part of a fashion history graduate program and would like to write about it, let me know at thefashionhistorian (at) gmail (dot) com.
I have exciting news of a blogger collaboration! Got Medieval, one of the first blogs I ever followed, and I will be doing a special collaborative post, talking about the movie A Knights Tale. I'll talk about fashion, he'll talk about history, it will be awesome.
And as always, I encourage you all to follow The Fashion Historian on twitter @PastFashion. I tweet whenever I update the blog, and I put links to fun stuff and post interesting bits of trivia. Also, if you don't already, you should become a follower of this blog itself! Just click the blue button that says "Join this Site" on the left side column. This is the best way for me to keep track of how many regular readers I have.
