The Fashion History Timeline is an open-access source for fashion history knowledge, featuring objects and artworks from over a hundred museums and libraries that span the globe. The Timeline website offers well-researched, accessibly written entries on specific artworks, garments and films for those interested in fashion and dress history. Started as a pilot project by FIT art history faculty and students in the Fall of 2015, the Timeline aims to be an important contribution to public knowledge of the history of fashion and to serve as a constantly growing and evolving resource not only for students and faculty, but also for the wider world of those interested in fashion and dress history. 

The Fashion History Timeline has over 600 entries written by 368 authors representing 41 different majors at FIT. Students from 19 classes have contributed to the timeline since its inception. Justine De Young, Assistant Professor in FIT’s History of Art department, is the project director, and will discuss the evolution of the Timeline, integration of the project into courses at FIT, and the Timeline’s importance to the study of the history of fashion.
