Fashion is in Style at the Library


Over the last year the library has hosted two exhibitions on fashion, one on Rose Marie Reid and one on headwear, and we have loaned items from our collection to Salt Lake Community College for their exhibitions.

There is no question that the fashion industry is a growing topic for research.

The library provides students and faculty access to many of the best resources.

A great place to start your work is the Costume & Fashion Research Guide: at  http://guides.lib.byu.edu/costumefashion
