I'm in the middle of my GCSE Textiles and am working on my Market Research page. I would be really grateful if any of you could spare, something like 1 minute to answer 10 questions - they're tick boxes so it's super quick - so I can collect some data. If you have some spare time please visit this link:
I'm an anthropology and art history student at Columbia University in New York, and I'm working on my senior honors thesis on the European modeling industry. I'm trying to speak to people who work with and in the modeling industry, such as models, scouts, bookers, stylists, casting directors, photographers, lawyers, accountants, et cetera. I'm also hoping to observe the organizational structure of the agency and casting process, and to analyze the contracts used.
My research is 100% funded and supervised by Columbia University, and all names will be changed for privacy and confidentiality. The data will only be used for academic purposes.
Please PM if you can help me out -- if you're in Europe, I'd love to buy you a meal/coffee as a token of my gratitude!

Hi guys, I really really need an article for my french project, in french obviously, about clothes and in general about what young people prefer to wear. What I'm absolutely fine with an article from a french magazine.
So I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help but I was wondering if anyone was knowledgable on the clothing depicted in statues of the Kore from Archaic Greek art? I am doing a paper on these statues, in particular looking at how the clothing depicted did/didn't represent the clothes worn during this era and the meaning behind the garments. I've found some information but I'd love to get some more detailed knowledge on it. Thanks

Hello! I'm doing researches about the trends for spring 2013 and part of it has to mention the 40s references in the collections. I managed to identify the peplum trend, but failed to id any other. Could anyone enlighten me (links to the runway photos are more than welcomed)? THANK YOU!
The 80's shoulder was an eggagerated take off on the 40's. Crying Diamonds is correct in pointing out Joan Crawford as a 40's fashion icon. . It was her own shoulders that inspired the 40's shoulders .... she exagerated hers by padding, but she really did have big shoulders.
War time in the 40's impacted fashion a lot ... so fabric and everthing else was rationed then, so skirts got shorter and skimpeir and I honestly think that the shoulders and the suits and pants for women that become so popular then, stemmed from military looks ... due mainly to the war. So I would say that anything with strong shoulders, a military look, especially suits and coat dresses, and high waisted, drapey pants are definitely inspired by the 40's.
Then the long, slim and sexy gowns with ruching and or expansive cleavage are pure 40's Hollywood. Not to mention platform shoes (wedges, in particlaur) ... which are also 40's inspired.
