European fashion will only be a click away

Feb '13
As a source of inspiration or for its mere timeless classy elegance, European fashion has always managed to intrigue fashion enthusiasts from all over the world, and to further tickle that undying interest in fashion lovers, an online archive, featuring more than 700,000 fashion-related digital contents, is being developed under the guidance of nearly 22 representatives of Europe’s leading public and private fashion institutions, including London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and Paris' Les Arts Décoratifs. 
 
Titled as europeanafashion.eu, the website will offer synchronized detailed information on early twentieth century’s garments, accessories, catalogues and fashion magazines preserved by some of the most important public and private cultural institutions and museums of applied arts in Europe.
 
Other than serving as an access point to European heterogeneous fashion creations, the digital library will also feature photographs, posters, drawings, sketches and videos of historical dresses.
 
Using search tools like date, designer name or keywords, the users will be able to view a particular item accompanied by catwalk shots, museum exhibitions, show invitations, magazine clippings or biography related to that respective creation.
 
In addition to the images and other fashion-based digital elements, the portal will feature a thesaurus compiled by V&A museum.
 
A joint-venture by 12 European countries, the website is scheduled to be unveiled in February 2015.
