The Fashion Collection is an assortment of clothes, accessories, fabrics and haberdashery items which date from Victorian times to the current day. Inspirational for drawing, photographing, animation or other projects, this is held in the Materials Room (Sheppard Library: Basement) although it is not accessible at the moment many of the core items can be viewed online.

More information about the Fashion Collection is available on a Special Collections Library Subject Guide.

The core items from the Fashion Collection are available to view in detail on Flickr.
