FASHION NOW AND THEN: LIM College will host the unveiling of Europeana Fashion, an online European fashion archive to include more than 700,000 digital items of fashion content connected to Europeana, the European Digital Library, at a conference today. The project encompasses 22 partners from 12 European countries. Included are the private archives of Pitti Immagine, Pucci, Missoni, Rossimoda; those of museums including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Musée de la Mode et du Textile at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Mode Museum of Antwerp, Museu do Design e da Moda of Lisbon and more, and new associated partners the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum and the Gianfranco Ferré Foundation.

The archive offers a variety of services and features, including a specialized data model known as EFDM, a fashion thesaurus available in 10 languages and the “IPR Best Practice Guidelines Manual,” to assist Europeana Fashion partners in clearing intellectual property rights for images. In addition to delivering content through its portal, Europeana Fashion will develop an interactive component with a Tumblr as well as a presence on social media platforms.

Today’s conference, presented by Alessandra Arezzi Boza, communications and content director of the Europeana Fashion Project, is called “Fashion: Now & Then: Meaning, Media and Mode,” in which participants will discuss the past, present and future uses of global fashion information, and continues through Saturday at LIM.
