Beskrivning

The Europeana Fashion International Association is a non-profit organisation established in order to bring together and engage fashion institutions (both GLAMs - Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums- and creative industries) in the valorisation and exploitation of fashion heritage online.

One of the main objectives of the Association is to keep alive and enrich the Europeana Fashion portal, through which more than 700.000 fashion objects can be accessed, shared and promoted on-line, and that brings together more than 30 public and private archives and museums, coming from 13 European countries, in order to collect and give public access to high quality digital fashion content, ranging from historical dresses to accessories, catwalk photographs, drawings, sketches, videos, and fashion catalogues.

The Europeana Fashion International Association aims to act as a point of reference for fashion institutions in Europe and worldwide, attracting museums, private archives and also academic institutions (like fashion schools and academies, fashion studies departments, etc.) in order to aggregate and make accessible a growing amount of fashion content, and giving the possibilities to all its members to curate and promote this content on-line, using the well-established Europeana Fashion social media channels (like the Europeana Fashion Tumblr, Pinterest or Instagram) and the Europeana Fashion portal.
