On 22 March 2013, Europeana Fashion together with Europeana, Wikimedia Sverige and partners Nordiska museet and Stockholm University Centre for Fashion Studies will host the first in a series of fashion edit-a-thons.

During the edit-a-thon, participants will come together to edit and contribute new information to Wikipedia using the digital collections shared by the Nordiska museet. The goal of the edit-a-thon is to improve and increase the presence of fashion-related information on Wikipedia.

Students, fashion bloggers and curators working with fashion or costume are invited to share and gather knowledge about fashion and costume. The theme is broad: fashion, folk costume history and casual wear through the last centuries.
