Screen Search Fashion

Screen Search Fashion | Screen Archive South East.

This online resource provides a thematic guide to aspects of 1920s and 1930s fashion and dress as depicted in film from Screen Archive South East’s (SASE) collections.

The selected themes guide you through the collections, using stills and clips from the archive.  These enable you to discover more about the different types of clothing worn, and their historical and design contexts. There are links to records in the Screen Search online database, where the films can be explored in further detail, as well as links to related resources held in archives, libraries and museums.  It also provides a bibliography of related literature and a glossary of terms.

Things Magazine

Things Magazine

“things magazine was originally founded in 1994 by a group of writers and historians based at the Victoria & Albert Museum/Royal College of Art in the belief that objects can open up new ways of understanding the world.

Now an independent magazine, things has built a reputation as a home for new writing – essays, reviews, short stories and poems – about objects and their meanings. The website contains a weblog, photography galleries, special projects, searchable archives and the occasional on-line only article.”
