Europeana Fashion is a best-practice project due to run until February 2015, financed by the European Union’s CIP ICT-PSP programme and involving some 22 partners from 12 European countries.
Participating partners include leading European institutions and collections in the field of fashion, including the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz (Prussian Cultural Heritage), the umbrella organization that oversees the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. All partners will supply the Europeana website with outstanding material on the history of European fashion. About 700,000 fashion-related objects will be made accessible online: historical clothing and accessories, photographs, fashion-inspired prints and drawings, videos, and posters.
