The Ohio State University: Fashion2Fiber

The Ohio State University houses an extensive Historic Costume and Textiles Collection that contains over 11,500 objects, such as textiles, articles of clothing, and accessories dating as far back as the mid-18th century. In an effort to make this collection more accessible to academics, artists, and interested aficionados, curators have digitized and made a portion of the collection available online via Fashion2Fiber. As of this write-up, Fashion2Fiber features nearly 400 examples selected from the Historic Costume and Textiles Collection, with each item including a written description, its time period, the type of fabric used, its designer (if applicable), and multiple photographs. The items in Fashion2Fiber have been organized into more than two dozen collections, most of which are delineated by decade, such as 1820-1829. Other collections include Ethnographic Costume & Textiles and the Ann W. Rudolph Button Collections. Another notable feature is The Columbus Fashion Story, a virtual exhibit that "examines the founding clothing manufacturers of Columbus, Ohio, throughout the late 1800s and early 1900s, and the circumstances of the time period that allowed them to be successful in an era of innovations in both clothing and its large-scale production."
