    ...
    I guess the title says it all ...

    I know in houses like Chanel etc. some people are in charge of the archives (press, outfits etc.), but I have no idea if those people work for Chanel or are specific people from museums who also work with Chanel ...

    Anyone ? Any idea ?
    Any informations ?

    I can't find anything about this onto the google ...

    I found a fiche-m├ętier for you Berlin: http://www.cidj.com/Viewdoc.aspx?docid=284&catid=1 :p

    Then, I guess you've to apply for the job at Chanel and you work for them exclusively. Don't quote me on that, but that'd seem more logical regarding how important Chanel's history is...

    ^yes that's what i mean ...

    i'm sure someone takes care of all these stuff ...
    someone with a history of art and/or history of fashion education ...

    thefrenchy : thanks for the "fiche". i know about it - the archives studies are among the hardest studies in france (well talking about the Ecole des Chartes - the real archivist school ! it's really hard-work !) ... but those are very documents, books etc. oriented !

    ^^ Why don't you contact the YSL Foundation? They actually give appointments to access the archives and you could ask questions there to start.

    ^I've decided to write to some Houses, indeed ...
    like Chanel (whose email response was "sorry we cannot communicate names informations, all i can say is write to Human Ressources to apply for a job" ... thank you but that was not my question ...), YSL and Dior.

    Not to work right now, but get informations ...
