An invitation to add to a growing collection of material stories. 

Inspired by Charles Darwin’s nephew, George Darwin’s 1872 paper “Development in Dress”, this online collection is part of a research project to create “biographies in dress” where clothes are read as biographies of gender, social climate, biological development, geographic location, personal change and cultural evolution.

Please hashtag images of cherished garments with #FashionAutobiography on social media with details of age at wearing, description of the garment, geographic location, year and top 3 reasons for wearing it that day/that year. Thank you!
