Costume History Research Projects
The narrative of clothing portrays the human affairs of human society, such as social divisions, social attitudes, social behaviour and social desires, perhaps more than any other scholarship. Researching social history can be likened to a jigsaw puzzle with many distorted pieces which mainly result from the absence of or restriction to related information. It also results from what has survived and what is available. A complete understanding of the social history in any given society in any historical milieu therefore requires the contribution of many disciplines.
