Westminster University's Harrow campus in the United Kingdom has claimed to have created the world's first dedicated archive of men's fashion open to public. Created by Andrew Groves, the archive contains more than 1,000 garments, including designs by Burberry and British couturier Alexander McQueen and rare military clothing, some of World War-I vintage.

It shows the impact military styles have had on menswear designs, says Groves, who is the director of a new course in menswear introduced in the university. Pieces range from 1900 to the present day and include contemporary designers.

The archive, created last year, has key pieces from French designer Jean Paul Gaultier, British brands Barbour and Berghaus, US brand Levi's and Japanese fashion label Comme des Garcons, according to British media reports.

The aim was to offer the new generation of menswear designers a glimpse into the historical context of the garments they are reinterpreting, added Groves. (DS)
