Google Archives 3000 years of fashion

Postby Rowan » Wed June 14th, 2017, 7:54 pm

Well, if you're writing about a period and don't know how they dressed, Google's got you covered.

Google’s latest project may be the most widely accessible and comprehensive fashion collection on the planet. All you need to view it is an internet connection.

“We Wear Culture” is a collaboration between Google and more than 180 museums, schools, fashion institutions, and other organizations from all parts of the globe. It’s part of Google’s Arts & Culture platform, which is digitizing the world’s cultural treasures, and functions as a searchable guide to a collective archive of some 30,000 fashion pieces that puts “three millennia of fashion at your fingertips,” Google says.

This could also be useful for genealogists trying to date photos by clothing, thanks.
