This month we curated the Europeana Fashion Tumblr with items from  the Europeana Fashion portal which currently holds more than 400.000 fashion-and costume related items. With the hashtag #eurfashionhighlights we highlighted some of the most eye-gazing elements from our partners’ collections, such as garments, accessories and illustrations. Highlights are Dušan Janković’ illustration of a coat, a kimono in hand-painted silk satin by Kenzo or a pair of pumps in satin with feather appliqué by Roger Vivier for Dior.

From a robe à la française, dated 1765, to Craig Green’s Autumn/Winter 2013/2014 collection, the curation on Tumblr offers an insight into Europeana Fashion’s digital archive. Trying to encompass the history of European fashion design, this month’s selection shows the results of the work done by the partners in the Europeana Fashion project over the past two and a half years.
